RAMBAN, JUNE 21: The 9th round of ongoing Kisan Sampark Abhiyan (Farmers Orientation programme-HADP) under the aegis of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav with the theme Aatmanirbhar Bharat was held successfully across 4 blocks of district Ramban.

The campaign ended today on a positive note as an overwhelming response was received from the farming community in all blocks. Audio-visuals (AVs) aids were used to disseminate the information about different government sponsored schemes meant for the welfare of the farmers associated with Agriculture, Animal Husbandry, Sheep Husbandry, Horticulture, Apiculture, Pisciculture, Sericulture etc.

The resource persons from different departments raised awareness regarding various schemes among the participating farmers. Informative booklets in 03 languages regarding the scheme of HADP were distributed among the participants. Moreover, farmers were also made aware about Daksh Kisan (online learning portal for skill development) and Kisan Sathi (IT Dashboard) portals regarding the digitalisation of various services/schemes.

The resource persons urged farmers to ensure maximum participation in Kisan Sampark Abhiyan; to avail orientation and skilling courses for all interventions, latest techniques, explore new possibilities, and make farming more accessible and profitable. During the program, farmers also raised various queries, which resolved the concerned resource persons amicably.

The event witnessed a huge participation of farmers’ mostly unemployed youth at each venue and 568 farmers were registered during the 9th round of Kisan Sampark Abhiyan for the baseline survey by the Skill gap study resource persons.
