E-carts for Punjab farmers

To help farmers market their produce, Punjab State Agricultural Workers Commission chairman Ajayvir Jakhar handed over vending e-carts to two beneficiaries on Wednesday.

Under Punjab government’s new initiative, Ajayvir said, farmers could earn profit by marketing their produce and providing fresh vegetables and fruit to consumers at reasonable prices.

He said by purchasing these subsidised, battery-powered e-carts, small farmers could deliver fresh vegetables and fruits directly from their fields to customers. He said small gardeners of the district could contact the horticulture department to get the e-carts.
