Team Udayavani, Apr 20, 2020, 9:45 AM IST

Government has launched Kisan Rath Mobile App that will facilitate farmers and traders to identify suitable transport facilities for the movement of farm produce during coronavirus lockdown.

The app will facilitate their searching for transport vehicles to ferry agricultural and horticultural produce and also reduce wastage of the commodities.

Perumal, national secretary of Bharatiya Kisan Sangh said, “Though the government announced that there must be no restriction in transporting agricultural produce, the traders are still facing difficulties in transporting the produce to other states. This discourages the traders to procure the produce from farmers, who are ultimately affected,”

Farmers, buyers, traders will have to place a requirement for transportation which will be disseminated to transport aggregators in the market, who in turn interface with truckers and fleet owners.

The app users have also been provided with helpline numbers to contact in case any problem arises.
