Growers to get 50% subsidy from railways for shipping agricultural goods

With the country's overall Covid-19 situation improving, the railways have chosen to provide farmers with a 50 percent subsidy for transporting perishable agricultural items outside of Bihar using parcel cargo Kisan Rail Air-conditioned express trains.

These dedicated trains go from several locations under the East Central Railway's (ECR) jurisdiction to Maharashtra, New Delhi, and other destinations, allowing farmers to carry agricultural products including vegetables, fruits, flowers, fish, meat, milk and other items outside of the state.

Last year, the Railways inaugurated the Kisan Rail initiative, which allows farmers to ship their agricultural products outside of the state to get a better price and explore new markets for their perishable or imperishable food products.
