AMRITSAR: Taking a step towards ecofriendly living, the Union government has initiated a project to make a model organic village in every district of Punjab to promote organic farming, beginning with the villages adopted by Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha MPs.

The assistant director of Regional Centre of Organic Farming, R S Harish Srivathsa, told TOI on Friday that they have begun the process of making clusters of farmers interested to adopt ecofriendly farming. He said the model organic village would set a precedent for others to follow.
