After doing the necessary reforms in the revenue system recently Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir emphasised on carrying out seasonal Girdawari (crop survey) digitally, capturing the actual record on ground in a more accurate manner. He further noted that in order to create the farmer’s registry, a mechanism should be devised to register actual cultivators so that the objective of Agristack is met successfully.

He remarked that the aim of this Agricultural Mission is to provide timely assistance to the farmers. He also said that it should be a means to extend credit facilities etc to farmers with minimal human interface.

He informed the meeting that the Agristack is a major initiative to digitally push Agriculture towards a new paradigm. He said that it provides an ecosystem for facilitating delivery of various services to farmers.
