  • Govt to link 22,000 rural markets to e-NAM portal

    The Centre today announced that 22,000 rural markets would be linked to the Electronic National Agriculture Market (e-NAM) by 2020 as part of its drive to double the income of farmers.

    Addressing the “AgriVikas 2018” in Bhubaneswar today, Union Minister of State for Agriculture Gajendra Singh Shekhawat said these 22,000 rural markets or haats will be upgraded to Gramin Agricultural Markets and linked with the e-NAM to enable farmers sale directly to potential buyers.

    The e-NAM is a pan-India electronic trading portal, a network of the existing Agricultural Produce Market Committee (APMC) mandis to create a unified national market for agricultural commodities.

    The portal provides a single window service for all APMC related information and services.
