Government’s eNAM (National Agriculture Market) portal has come handy in successfully integrating 585 markets across the country, wherein a trader from one part of the country can now bid for grains from any other part. However, this also has its own shortcomings. The traders won’t get to check the quality of the grains. While primary trading doesn’t really have quality testing criteria in place, secondary trading involving FMCGs and millers have to pay between Rs.800-2,000 for testing each sample in a laboratory. It takes another three days to get the results.
