- The Government of India is converting the fertilizer retail shops into Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samriddhi Kendras (PMKSKs).
- These PMKSKs will act as a nodal point for all agriculture related activities, and disseminate the latest innovations, best practices, knowledge, techniques and tests that will help the farmers to not only increase their productivity but also reduce cost of production.
- This step of PMKSKs will make our farmers capable in doubling their income and in turn will act as a significant step in India’s food security and growth story.
Why in News?
- Union Minister of Chemical & Fertilizers Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya addressed farmers who gathered at around 9000 PMKSKs across the country.
