We, "PRAGTI FARMS" - collaboration of farmers and retired senior executives from Government services. Here we present the Kisan Meet - a new platform website specially designed for the benefit of farmers as well as customers.The motive of introduction of this website is to provide a direct and simple market place for farmers and the buyers. Here the farmer/seller and customer/buyer can see the contact details and location of each party. They can sell/buy directly so that more profit may be earned by the farmers. The function of providing this platform is to cut the costs by selling directly from the farmers.
There are so many ways to use this website but main concern of this website is successful selling or buying for the benefit of both the farmers and consumers.
So, Let us know about this website platform. This platform is having three categories of people like first is farmer category, second is buyer category and the third is agent category. Here the farmer is main seller and the buyer may be a businessman, restaurant, hotel, trader or general customer.
So, first of all we will talk about seller means the farmer, who cultivates and produces their own goods but depends completely upon the markets for sale and sale price of goods. He has no right to determine the price of his own produced goods. As we all know that farming in India is very difficult but the condition of farmers is very bad now a days, but nobody has time to bother about that. Although, there are so many farmer associations, unions and organizations formed to help farmers, but it seems not enough to uplift and empower the farmer. All these types of farmer unions and associations fight for the benefits of farmers and take participation in rallies / agitations against farmers’ deaths / loans and uplift the farmers & demand for farmers’ debt waiver. These unions try to take initiatives and steps to increase the income of farmers. The government also declares to double the income of farmers continuously, but seems not an easy task. The farmer grows food for everyone but he has no right to determine the price of his produce. With the change of time, the farmers now need to change their old practices to sale the produce, which is also very much required to get better price as compared to earlier price. The farmer must try to sale directly to the consumer to get better price. This will be the way by which the farmer will sell at more price and the buyer will purchase at cheaper price as compared to earlier, because the margin of all mediators and brokers will be shared by seller and buyer directly.
Here we try to make a new farmers’ market where the farmers can sell their produce online directly to buyers without any mediators. When a network of farmers join this website and sale directly to the customer then there will be benefit to both parties.
