Ratna De Nag asks Supplementary Questions regarding e-NAM platform

FULL TRANSCRIPT

Madam, under the National Agriculture Market Scheme, training is provided to market officials, farmers, traders, commercial agents and others. I welcome the efforts being made by the Government as it disseminates awareness about the Electronic National Agriculture Market (e-NAM) to the various stakeholders, particularly farmers. As per the Minister’s statement, the number of markets integrated since January 2018 to March 26, 2018 in Bangla is 17.

First Supplementary

I would like to ask the Minister through you, Madam, have any targets been fixed for the markets to be integrated with the e-NAM platform?

Second Supplementary

Would the Hon. Minister please state as to how it is coordinating with the State to promote e-trading of agri-commodities for the benefit of farmers and how it helps the farmers to give e-tenders, since they are not fully aware or well-versed with the whole concept of the Electronic National Agriculture Market?

Thank you, Madam.
