Centre pushes eNAM in states without APMCs
The Centre is pushing the online agri-trading platform eNAM in states that do not have Agricultural Produce Market Committees (APMCs) to give farmers bigger opportunities to sell their produce.
Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman recently asked states to scrap APMCs and join eNAM to help farmers get better price realisation of their produce. APMC is a marketing board meant to moderate prices and prevent big traders from exploiting farmers.
Officials said business transactions are growing and more than 150 commodities are being traded on the electronic platform.
