Under the government’s new decision, only clay pots will be used to sell food and beverages at 400 railway stations in the country. For this, the product will be purchased from the potters present in different parts of the country. This will boost their business. Not only this, electronic chalk will also be distributed to potters. So that they can make more products in less time. Also put a new design in the pottery.
