Gangtok: Farmers in Sikkim will now be able to sell their produce directly to the customers from shopping complexes being set up in different towns in order to give a boost to the government’s organic mission.
The first such complex, “Kisan Bazar”, will be inaugurated in Gangtok on Sunday.
Since April 1, the government had imposed a ban on the sale of non-organic vegetables, barring a few items, which are procured from outside the state.
The restriction on the sale of non-organic vegetables is the second phase of the government’s organic mission. In the first phase, the state became cent per cent organic producer.
