He said the pilot project was undertaken in Krishnajilla in collaboration with a startup company to conduct five types of tests on IRT in real time based on RBK.

We are buying grain through RBK without the involvement of millers. This time we have done this crop one hundred percent. He said that we are using this crop data without any room for irregularities. It is said that every farmer’s account is linked to Aadhaar. We are depositing money directly in the farmer’s accounts without any agents. 80 per cent said it was unrealistic not to give money.
