The issue of outstanding incentives for orthodox tea production and extending the scheme for further period will also be looked into, according to the release.

The delegation was led UPASI president AL RM Nagappan.

The UPASI members met Goyal along with Minister of State for External Affairs V Muraleedharan on December 9 at Delhi, the release said.
