Shamir told media here on the sidelines of the 7th Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit-2015 that these centres will be opened in Haryana, Maharashtra, Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and West Bengal.

Shamir said Israel has accepted Prime Minister Narendra Modi's appeal for ushering a white revolution in India and added that Israel wants to help India combat hunger and provide ample food security.
