Farmers selling paddy at the support price will now be able to obtain online tokens for the sale of paddy while sitting at home, thanks to the initiative of Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel. On the Chief Minister’s instructions, NIC simplified and systematised the process of issuing tokens for the sale of paddy to registered farmers with an Android app, “Token Tuhar Haath”.
Each registered farmer will be able to obtain a token for the sale of paddy in the respective procurement centre on the date specified by him using the “Token Tuhar Hath” app. The farmer will receive all of the most recent information about the farmer’s information, registered acreage, bank account, token and paddy purchase, and so on through this app. Using this app, registered farmers can obtain tokens for the next seven days in the respective committee procurement or procurement centres.
Online tokens can be obtained through the app up to 30% of the purchasing capacity of the relevant committee or procurement centre per day. Even within the above limits, marginal, small, and large farmers will have equal access to tokens proportionate to their registered number.
The remaining 70% of purchasing capacity in the relevant committee procurement centre will be available for offline tokens. As in previous years, they can obtain tokens from the committee module. Farmers will be able to obtain the token both online and offline in this manner.
