Helping India's farmers embrace a cashless economy

NEW DELHI: The government has taken a slew of measures to ensure that cash requirements of farmers are not adversely impacted due to the demonetisationexercise, even as it has urged farmers to join the movement for cashless transactions in the ongoing sowing season.

About 50 farmers did their first cashless transaction at the event and bought seeds and fertilisers in the presence of Union ministers.

Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh and Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu were present at the event held in Dadri on November 26. On November 27, the Agriculture Minister attended a seminar in Dehradun, while the Railway Minister was present at Palwal.
