In a rural setup, the lockdown raised typical issues. The farmers were unable to sell their produce for which they faced heavy losses and on the other hand the buyers couldn’t drive down to the local markets due to restrictions on vehicle movement!
YCDA came up with a solution which is no more limited to urban areas! VEGETABLES ON WHEELS!
SHGs like Maa Mangala and Jai Jagannath production groups with continuous support from ORMAS, Agriculture Production Cluster (APC), Panchayat Samiti, Kantamal sold over 2400 Kgs of fresh vegetables and fruits in 28 villages.
