CSIR-Central Road Research Institute (CSIR-CRRI) has developed “Kisan Sabha App”. This app was remotely launched amid nationwide lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic. This application has been rolled out to connect farmers to supply chain and freight transportation management system. The recently launched portal will be a single stop for every entity related to agriculture such as farmer who needs good price for the crops, mandi dealer who needs to connect to more farmers, and truckers who repeatedly go empty from the mandis.
