KisanSabha is a leading portal for the Farmer, transporter, and for other entities related to the agriculture industry. Developed by CSIR-Central Road Research Institute (CSIR-CRRI), New Delhi to connect farmers to supply chain and freight transportation management systems. The portal acts as a single stop for every entity related to agriculture, be they a farmer who needs better price for the crops or mandi dealer who wants to connect to more farmers or truckers who invariably go empty from the mandis.


Thikri pehra:

Indian states Punjab and Haryana have resorted to the age-old practice of thikri pehra — community policing — to curb the movement of people in and out of villages in the wake of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) lockdown. The tradition made a comeback after more than two decades — communities guarded their villages in the aftermath of terrorist movement and when the infamous Kala Kachcha gang gave locals sleepless nights years ago.


GI tag for Kashmir Saffron:

Kashmir saffron, which is cultivated and harvested in the Karewa (highlands) of Jammu and Kashmir, has been given the Geographical Indication (GI) tag by the Geographical Indications Registry. It is long, thick and has a natural deep red colour. Also, it has a high aroma and is processed without adding any chemicals. The colour of the saffron is unique due to the high quantity of crocin.


One Nation One Ration Card:

One Nation One Ration Card (RC) will ensure all beneficiaries especially migrants can access PDS across the nation from any PDS shop of their own choice. No poor person is deprived of getting subsidized foodgrains under the food security scheme when they shift from one place to another. It also aims to remove the chance of anyone holding more than one ration card to avail benefits from different states.

This will provide freedom to the beneficiaries as they will not be tied to anyone PDS shop and reduce their dependence on shop owners and curtail instances of corruption. Under the ONORC, the beneficiaries from one state can get their share of rations in other states where the ration card was originally issued.

  • After the scheme gets implemented at the national level, any PDS recipient can use their ration cards at any PDS shop across the country.
  • ONORC seeks to provide universal access to PDS food grains for migrant workers.
