Kolkata: The Bengal Agriculture Department is going to set up a platform through which farmers can interact directly with government officials and convey the problems they are facing.
The department is going to organise Krishi Melas in every district from November 25 to December 25. At these fairs, among other things, officials will interact with farmers to know whether they are getting all sorts of benefits on time and whether they are facing any problems. In case a problem relates to any other department, it will be conveyed to the concerned department. Farmers can also give suggestions to the officials.
According to an official, it will be of great help for farmers as their problems will be solved within a short time span and they would not have to suffer due to lack of suggestions.
