Government will cover as many as 585 agricultural markets electronically by the next year, which will allow farmers to sell their produce anywhere in the country, Agriculture Secretary Shobhana K Pattanayak said today.

On April 14, the government had launched the project on a pilot basis, beginning with 21 markets covering eight states.

"We are hopeful of rolling this out in 585 markets in the country by the next year. The farmers for the first time will have a voice to sell goods wherever they want to. It will empower farmers," Pattanayak said at a workshop on India Country Programme Evaluation jointly organised by IFAD and the Department of Economic Affairs.
