Union Minister of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Narendra Singh Tomar on Tuesday said that blended learning and the agricultural sector will help India in becoming a developed nation by 2047. 

While speaking at an event on the blended learning ecosystem for higher education in agriculture 2023 hosted jointly by ICAR and World Bank, he said that agriculture, which is the backbone of India’s economy, can thrive with limited funding due to technology and knowledge.

Tomar said that in the past five years, the ICAR has reached a new height. 

"When we launched Krishi Megh nobody knew it would act as a game-changer during the pandemic as it did not let India’s education system be as adversely affected as other countries. I believe even in the future; it will help us in achieving many new accolades," he added.

Tomar also said that it is the priority of the government to improve the standard of living of all, including the country's poor, labourers, farmers and tribal brothers and sisters.

"The government is doing whatever corrective work needs to be done in the direction of upcoming challenges, need of technology and significance of digitalisation," he said.

The minister added that India ranks the best in terms of digital transactions.
