Gramin Suvidha Kendra

Gramin Suvidha Kendra, a joint programme by the Multi Commodity Exchange of India Ltd (MCX) and India Post, seeks to include farmers in the modern commodity market ecosystem by enhancing their value realisation from agricultural activities. It is a single window service designed to empower small and marginal farmers with knowledge about market prices of the locally produced commodities and best practices for enhancing quality standards of their produce and making farming economically sustainable. Besides this, Gramin Suvidha Kendra aims to provide critical market linkages throughout the crop cycle, from pre-sowing to post-harvest stages, by collaborating with a host of partners.

To make farming economically sustainable by:
  • Empowering farmers with spot (current) and futures prices of commodities grown locally and other information; thus, enabling them to take informed decisions.
  • Providing value-added services by assisting farmers in formulating a cropping strategy and maximising returns; thus, helping raise their standard of living.
  • Creating market linkages for farmers; thus, promoting inclusive growth and shifting farmers from being mere ‘producers’ to becoming ‘sellers of their produce’.
