Tripura gets its first-ever bakery shop that would sell the products made in the bakery unit of Tripura Central Correctional Home, Bishalgarh at City Centre, located in the heart of Agartala City.
Inaugurating the bakery, Deputy Chief Minister Jishnu Dev Verma said, “It’s an ambitious step which has been started by Tripura Rural Livelihood Mission (TRLM) and Central Jail authorities. The name of the bakery is TRICOS, the official brand of the correctional home. It’s a multipurpose showroom cum bakery. Handicraft products will be also available here.”
“30 percent share of the profit would be shared with the SHG. It’s a pilot project. If this initiative gets successful than we shall spread the business across the state. It will help to generate employment. I have visited the Central Jail here 4 months back and was shocked after being witnessed a beautifully clean and modern bakery ”, Dev Verma added.
