KVIC has created a world record of distributing maximum number of bee-boxes in one day. This was achieved by the KVIC in the Zangalee Army area at Kupwara in Kashmir beating its previous best of 1000 bee boxes distributed in Kaziranga forest area among the Mishing tribe on the occasion of World Honey Bee Day. Two thousand three hundred thirty(2330) bee-boxes were distributed among 233 beneficiaries in the Zangalee Army area.

Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister,Kavinder Gupta, said that the KVIC's programmes could generate jobs in the valley.

The KVIC Chairman, Vinai Kumar Saxena, said that the 'Honey Mission' is aimed to fulfil the call of Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, for a Sweet Kranti. The KVIC made an action plan named 'Honey Mission' - with a target to distribute 1.3 lakh bee-boxes before November 2018 across the country and so far 27,000 bee-boxes have already been distributed. The Chairman further added that KVIC is the nodal agency of Prime Minister Employment Generation Programme (PMEGP) under which loans will be provided for setting up units of processing, bottling, packaging and labelling units for the honey.

Indian Army helped in providing training and also provided 10 percent financefor setting up of the apiaries, thereby providing the beneficiaries a platform for earning livelihood.
