Prime Minister Narendra Modi will wave off the 100th Kisan Rail from Sangola in Maharashtra to Shalimar in West Bengal today through video-conferencing.
The vegetables such as cauliflower, capsicum, cabbage, drumsticks, chilies, onion, as well as fruits like grapes, oranges, pomegranate, banana, custard apple etc, will be transferred by the multi-commodity train service. On December 26, Prime Minister’s Office said, “Kisan Rail has been a game-changer in ensuring fast transportation of agriculture products across the nation. It provides a seamless supply chain of perishable produce.”
Kisan Rail was originated earlier this year to support farmers carry their perishable produce to different parts of the country. The service has seen a good reply from farmers.
