Government to Provide Weather Information through Facebook, Twitter
In order to save crops due to frequent weather changes, the Government of India has launched the 'Gramin Krishi Mausam Seva' (GKMS) scheme under the ' Pilot Project.’ For this purpose, weather information will now be provided on Facebook and Twitter through the Earth System Science Organization (ESSO) and the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD).
This will help farmers to have prior weather information. Krishi Vigyan Kendra launched the GKMS in November 2018.
