Need for it
In recent times the dairy production has seemed to be going down largely. Farmers who are involved in livestock trading are facing a lot of problems these days as they are not getting enough livestock to grow their production. Looking at such scenario the central government has decided and launched an online portal for the farmers across the nation through which the farmers can trade their livestock, buy and sell embryos, semen and a lot of provisions to encourage daily production.
- This is an online portal and farmers do not need to run from one place to another to get the livestock they want. With this portal farmers from one state can trade with the farmers from another state.
- There is a home delivery provision under this portal. Farmers who are buying livestock from the portal can get them at their doorstep without going anywhere.
- At present there is no organised market for the livestock or daily animals. This web portal will be the first organised livestock market for the farmers.
- There is a proper transportation system under the e-Pashu Haat to transfer the animals from one state to another. Due to this the home delivery system has been introduced in here.
Farmers who are involved in livestock and dairy productions are the main beneficiaries of the portal. Also certified livestock traders are also eligible to trade through the e-Pashu Haat.
The ePashu Haat is introduced as the part of National Mission of Bovine Production started by the central government of India. The total amount of Rs. 825 Cr is been allotted for the NMBP scheme. On the other the e-pashu haat was initiated with the budget of 2 Cr in the first phase.
