Leverage on technology to disseminate Real time data, especially to farmers – on production, prices, imports, stocks and overall availability

Inadequate Progress

The BJP government launched various mobile- based apps and web portals to disseminate information to farmers about inputs, insurance, weather, technology, prices,etc and farmers can also seek and get advice.
However, the real time data on import and stock availability is not yet covered. There are gaps in terms of areas being covered, information provided is mostly in text and not easily understandable. Not much focus on audio has been given which would greatly increase their usability for farmers (as literacy amongst them continues to be low), regional languages have not been covered ,some provide static information and no user interface and issues of malfunction remain.
