The administration has prioritised growing the rural economy and increasing the productivity of agriculture and related sectors. On July 28th, the Prime Minister will visit Sabar Dairy and inaugurate and lay the foundation stone for numerous projects totaling more than Rs. 1,000 crores. These projects will enhance the revenue of local farmers and milk producers. This will also help the rural economy in the region.

The Prime Minister will dedicate the Powder Plant at Sabar Dairy, which has a capacity of around 120 metric tonnes per day (MTPD). The total cost of the project exceeds Rs. 300 crores.

The plant’s layout complies with worldwide food safety regulations. It is extremely energy efficient and emits nearly no emissions. The factory is outfitted with a cutting-edge, fully automated bulk packaging line.

The Prime Minister will also dedicate the Sabar Dairy’s Aseptic Milk Packaging Plant. It is a cutting-edge factory with a daily capacity of 3 lakh litres. The project was completed with a total investment of around Rs 125 crores. The facility boasts the most recent automation system, which is very energy efficient and environmentally friendly. The project will contribute to greater milk producer payment.

In addition, the Prime Minister will lay the groundwork for the Sabar Cheese and Whey Drying Plant Project. The project’s anticipated cost is roughly Rs 600 crores. Cheddar Cheese (20 MTPD), Mozzarella Cheese (10 MTPD), and Processed Cheese will be produced at the plant (16 MTPD). Whey generated during cheese production will also be dried in a Whey Drying Plant with a capacity of 40 MTPD.

Sabar Dairy is a member of the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), which produces and sells milk and milk products under the Amul brand.

The Prime Minister will visit GIFT City in Gandhinagar on July 29. GIFT City (Gujarat International Finance Tec-City) was envisioned as a global integrated centre for financial and technological services.

The Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone for the International Financial Services Centres Authority (IFSCA), India’s single regulator for the development and regulation of financial products, financial services, and financial institutions in International Financial Services Centres (IFSCs).

The edifice was designed to be an iconic symbol of GIFT-expanding IFSC’s significance and reputation as a major International Financial Centre.

India International Bullion Exchange (IIBX), India’s first International Bullion Exchange at GIFT-IFSC, will be launched by the Prime Minister. Apart from accelerating the financialisation of gold in India, IIBX would promote efficient price discovery with the assurance of responsible sourcing and quality. It would enable India to reclaim its rightful place in the global bullion market and to provide quality and integrity to the global value chain. IIBX also reaffirms the Government of India’s commitment to enable India to influence global bullion pricing as a primary consumer.

The Prime Minister will also unveil the NSE IFSC-SGX Connect. It is a collaboration between the National Stock Exchange’s subsidiary in the GIFT International Financial Services Centre (IFSC) and Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX).

All orders on NIFTY futures made by Singapore Exchange members will be routed to and matched on the NSE-IFSC order matching and trading platform under Connect. Broker-Dealers from India and other foreign countries are expected to trade derivatives over the Connect in considerable numbers. It will increase liquidity in GIFT-IFSC derivative markets, attracting more foreign participants and having a favourable influence on the GIFT-IFSC financial ecosystem.

The 44th Chess Olympiad will have a dramatic debut on July 28 when Prime Minister Narendra Modi declares it open at the JLN Indoor Stadium in Chennai.

The Prime Minister also announced the first-ever Chess Olympiad Torch Relay, which will take place on June 19, 2022, at the Indira Gandhi National Stadium in New Delhi.

From July 28 to August 9, 2022, Chennai will host the 44th Chess Olympiad. The famous tournament, which has been held since 1927, is being held in India for the first time and in Asia for the first time in 30 years.

On July 29, the Prime Minister will attend the 42nd Convocation of the famed Anna University in Chennai. During the occasion, he will present 69 gold medalists with gold medals and certificates. On this occasion, the Prime Minister will also address the assembly.
