    7% of Indian total cold storage capacity..
    that's great.helping the farmers to get good price for their crop is the best part.

    wish my state too help farmers by increasing cold storages

    Actually that part is not clear from the article, it seems the cold storage owners become middle men but it is helping farmers to some extent as the entire crop does not get wasted. I wonder if cold storages can be started in co-operative mode by farmers themselves.
