SHRI A.C. JOS : We have a Coconut Development Board situated at Cochin. Can you channelise your funds through this Board because the Board is already seized of the matter? The Board has examined the problems and they themselves have stated that Rs. 150 crore are necessary which they themselves would provide. I would like to know from the hon. Minister whether he would kindly check up with the Board what are their activities and alert them to do something in this matter.

SHRI NITISH KUMAR: The role of the Coconut Development Board has been properly narrated in the main reply itself. The main reply also talks about what different agencies put together are doing there. Now, I am just responding to specific questions of the hon. Members.
