The online market or mandi started by Prime Minister Narendra Modi Government to double farmers’ income has turned successful. According to the data released by the government, so far around 1.64 crore farmers of the country have registered themselves at this online platform known as National Agricultural Market Scheme (e-NAM).

It is important to mention that till 2017 only 17000 farmers were associated with this e-mandi. e-NAM is an online agricultural portal whose main task is to connect all Agri Product Marketing Committee across India into one network. Its objective is to provide a market for agricultural products at the national level. Seeing the benefits from this, farmers are increasingly engaging with it. Farmers' income will definitely increase by 2022 if they obtain good prices of agricultural products through the National Agriculture Market.

585 mandis of India have been linked with the Internet – The agricultural produce markets located in different states of the country have been connected through the Internet under e-NAM. Its main target is to make the entire country into one market place. For instance, if a farmer from Gorakhpur wants to sell his produce in Bihar, then it has become easier for him to carry and market his agricultural produce with e-NAM.
