NIC initiates e-Governance in agriculture by launching “www.agmarknet.nic.in”

National Informatics Center (NIC) has developed a website www.agmarknet.nic.in to disseminate information on various commodity arrivals, price of agricultural produce and also on other agricultural sector-related activities.

The site will be useful for traders, consumers, government departments and research organizations and provides information of any agricultural commodity, its arrivals and prices in most of the markets in India.

According to an official release, in order to provide reliable and comprehensive market information, the Directorate of Marketing and Inspection has launched the Project Agricultural Marketing Information Network (AGMARKNET).

Computers have been set up in around 800 markets all over country to collect daily information on commodities arrival and prices under this project.

In Goa, six markets of the State Agricultural Marketing Board, Margao, Mapusa, Ponda, Curchorem, Canacona and Sanquelim are covered under this scheme and already started disseminating market information.
