1. The MACP involves the participation of three line departments, viz. Agriculture, Animal Husbandry and Agricultural Marketing. Similarly, at the State level there are three departments headed by three Principal Secretaries, viz. (i) Agriculture, (ii) ADF, (iii) Agricultural Marketing.

There are some interventions/activities that take place at taluka and district places. In order to co-ordinate the interventions at various stages, setting up of PCU facilitates the co-ordination between the line departments. The PCU guides and directs the line departments in the implementation of the project. It acts as an interface between the Steering Committee and the PIU of the line departments.
4. The PIU acts as a link between the PCU and the final beneficiaries. The PIU also gets the assistance of ATMA and the concerned district officer of their department in order to ensure smooth implementation. The officers besides the Nodal Officer in PIU are identified by the head of the department and these officers work in PIU. The PIU periodically reviews the progress in each intervention and provides corrective actions as and when necessary for the effective project implementation. The management of the Project would mean periodical monitoring of the actual level of achievement corresponding to the
