Workshop on “Unlocking value through e-Commerce & Supporting Agri-Horti sector through e-RaKAM”

In line with the “Look East” and “Act East” policies of the Government of India, MSTC has taken many steps with a view to benefit the farmers which will subsequently benefit the entire North East Region. MSTC and other stakeholders including NABARD, NERAMAC, CRWC, FPOs, etc. are working together for overall development of the Agri-horti Eco- System in the NER.
MSTC and CRWC launched the e-RAKAM portal (e-Rashtriya Kisan Agri Mandi), a first of its kind initiative that connects farmers from small villages to the biggest markets of the world through Internet.
e-RAKAM will minimize the role of agents/middlemen and the benefit shall be passed on directly to the farmers thereby enabling them to increase their income substantially. This unified platform for Agri & Horti produces provides facilities for Sale, Purchase, Price Discovery, Fixed Price Sale, etc. along with Integrated Logistics Services (last mile connectivity and door delivery). MSTC can extend its e-commerce services comprising of auction, procurement, e-sale and exclusive portals for handicrafts and other niche products.
Moving ahead in this direction, MSTC Ltd. has conducted a Workshop on “Unlocking Value through e-Commerce & Supporting Agri-Horti sector through e-RaKAM” on 31st August, 2018 in Imphal, Manipur.
The Hon’ble Union Steel Minister of State (Steel), Shri Vishnu Deo Sai was Chief Guest. The workshop aimed to support Government initiatives promoting the digital drive & transparency in economy through e-commerce as well as fuel growth in income in the agri-horti sector through the effective use of MSTC’s E-commerce platform “e-RaKAM”, i.e.“e- Rashtriya Kisan Agri Mandi” in the North-Eastern States.
