Workshop to address marketing problems of farmers
ITANAGAR, July 22: NABARD in collaboration with National Institute of Agricultural
Marketing is organizing a State level Awareness Programme on Govt of India Scheme
in Itanagar on July 23, which will be attended by officials of Agriculture, Horticulture,
Fisheries, AH& Vety, Finance, Planning, Marketing Board, bankers and NGOs. The workshop
will be inaugurated by Director, Agriculture Tago Basar and will be addressed by
Marketing Officer, Directorate of Marketing & Inspection, Govt of India. The Programme
would be useful in creating awareness on various aspects and type of projects which
can be sanctioned in the State.
The farming community in Arunachal Pradesh is diversifying into new areas of crops
- spieces – large cardamom, black pepper ginger, turmeric, chillies, fruit crops
– kiwi, citrus, pineapple, etc. covering an area of 86,154 Ha. The production during
2007-08 of ginger was 38,000 MT, large cardamom 635 MT, citrus 37780 MT, pineapple
32780 MT. Progressive farmers of West Kameng district have taken up cultivation of
While the production level has significantly improved, the marketing infrastructure
in the State is quite inadequate for marketing of these crops. Farmers are reportedly
selling these products to commission agents / middlemen from other States direct
from field. Farmers producing kiwi face lot of problems to get good price of their
produce as they are unable to sell their products in Delhi market. Most of the
farmers are ignorant of post harvest technology and during the transit, more than
25% fruit crops get damaged. There are neither modern fruit & vegetable markets nor
spices market in the State. There is also no modern meat market in the State.
With a view to improving the existing agriculture marketing network and also to promote
a parallel marketing network in the private and cooperative sector, the Government
of India, Ministry of Agriculture & Cooperation launched Scheme for development /
strengthening of agricultural marketing infrastructure, grading and standardization
with effect from October 2004. The aim of the scheme is to provide additional agricultural
marketing infrastructure that helps in coping up with the marketing surpluses of
agricultural and allied commodities including dairy, poultry, livestock. Under the
Scheme, subsidy @ 33.33% is available in North Eastern States and upper ceiling is
Rs 60 lakh; while for government bodies there is no upper ceiling. The scheme is
credit linked and applicable in those States which amend the APMC Act to permit setting
up of agricultural markets in private and cooperative sectors and allow direct marketing
and contract farming.
Arunachal Pradesh has already amended APMC Act in 2006 and thus the scheme is applicable
in Arunachal Pradesh. Some State Agricultural Marketing Boards in Rajasthan, Punjab,
Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Maharashtra, Andra Pradesh have taken steps to
modernize / strengthen the APMCs and also to create additional infrastructure. Some
private entrepreneurs and corporates had also set up private markets and also resorted
to contract farming which have not only solved marketing problems of farmers but
also provided them better price of their produce. Incidentally, no project has been
taken up either by Marketing Board or private entrepreneurs in Arunachal Pradesh.
You just won a lottery!
For people new to internet, frauds involving unsolicited emails may not be apparent
to them, but sooner or later many of these novice users get bitten by online scams,
reports Raju Mimi.
ROING, July 22: While on a regular check through my email, I received a mail from
a young student from Anini informing me about a letter of remittance he had received
in the name of Reserve Bank of India informing him of one million British Pounds
to be released in his name.
The letter was sent to him through e-mail with letterheads that look like that of
RBI and purportedly signed by Governor RBI to make it appear as genuine
Though the offer had in the beginning tempted him, a slender idea of it being an
internet fraud aroused his suspicion and he was on time alerted. But not many are
lucky to have evaded such misfortune.
Milo (name changed), a small time shopkeeper in Roing, lost thirty thousand rupees
to acquire the prize money of five hundred thousand of Great British pound, which
the fraudsters claimed he won in a lottery.
“I could not sleep or eat properly for many month”, he says.
Having lost their hard earned money, the victim undergoes a prolonged mental agony.
Most often, these frustrations stems not merely out of grief over loss of money,
but on the inability of the victim to share the experience with others.
“I couldn’t speak about it even to my closest friends, as I didn’t like to be mocked
and appear foolish”.
And this is the reason why many such cases go unreported. In Roing alone, it is estimated
that there are around more than fifty such cases of people falling prey to unsolicited
fraud emails, though it could only be a grossly underestimated figure. The victim
ranges from students to even govt officials and such gory tales of fraud goes only
about with whisper in the ear. More recently, such fraudulent messages have started
to appear via SMS informing the user of having won prize money of several thousand
“Despite such widespread fraudulent messages circulating around us, there is lack
of adequate awareness”, says A Meme, a local in Roing.
The reason as he cites, “Upon recieving message of winning a prize money, the victim
chooses to keep the information on their new found fortune a secret, which only adds
to their bad luck. After they have doled out huge money to get their fortune, then
they realize the folly of it.”
“However, even after experiencing the bitter fact, it remains as a secret for fear
For fraudsters, the limitless boundary offered by internet and mobile services has
made them reach to victims even to far off places like Anini. So time again, RBI
has been generating awareness informing the people that the remittance in any form
towards participation in lottery schemes is prohibited under the Foreign Exchange
Management Act, 1999.
And, these restrictions as RBI says are also applicable to remittances for participation
in lottery-like schemes functioning under different names, such as, money circulation
scheme or remittances for the purpose of securing prize money /awards, etc.
As modern means of communication pervades our life, ignorance can only mean bad luck.
