The Centre on Tuesday notified Parliament that it has achieved integration of 1,260 wholesale mandis, pinpointed in twenty-two states and three union territories, with the electronic-National Agriculture Market (e-NAM).

Farmers auction their agricultural produce at 6,900-odd agriculture produce marketing committees nationwide. Some of them are also turning to online bidding through the e-NAM platform.

Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar in Lok Sabha said that as of 30 November 2022, 1,260 mandis of twenty-two states and three UTs have been incorporated with the e-NAM platform.

Also, based on the Detailed Project Reports received from States and UTs, the central government is incorporating mandis with the e-NAM platform, Tomar added.

E-NAM, launched in April 2016, is being carried out by a central government agency, the Small Farmers Agribusiness Consortium (SFAC), with the help of state governments.

Since the beginning, about Rs 649.87 crore had been released for integrating mandis with the eNAM platform, said the minister.

Currently, the e-NAM platform is incorporating existing physical wholesale mandis of various states and UTs to promote online trading of agricultural entities through transparent price discovery strategies to enable farmers to realise satisfactorily profitable prices for their produce, he stated.
