Under the aegis of National Agricultural Innovation Project, Acharya N.G. Ranga Agricultural Universitys Home Science Department have come out with natural colours for Holi festival.

The nine different natural colours made out of leaves, fruits, flowers and roots of plants were released here by NAIP coordinator R.K.Goyal.

Addressing the gathering, Mr. Goyal said the initiative would help generate livelihood options for the tribals and others involved as part of the project. He also pointed out that natural colours were not only cheaper compared to synthetic colours but also safe. Earlier in the day, Mr. Goyal and ANGRAU Vice-Chancellor P.
