If you wish to do something then no one can stop you from doing that; four students of the Buddha Institute of Technology (BIT), Gorakhpur have proved this so well. Shivani Singh, Abhishek Mall, Apeksha Singh and Gajendra Pandey, final year students of the mechanical department of BIT, under the guidance of Dhirendra Kumar have designed a model of mini tractor to reduce the cost of cultivation for small farmers. The total cost of this tractor will be around Rs 25000 to 30000.

With this mini tractor, farmers will be able to plow around half acre of land in one liter of petrol. The students have claimed that at present the plowing of one bigha (less than 1 acre) land costs about Rs. 400 to 500 for the farmers, but the mini tractor will do the same work in just Rs. 90. Students told that farmers can very easily take the mini to their fields. It has a 135 cc petrol engine and 13 hp power.

It must be noted that in India, about 65 to 70 percent of the families depend upon agriculture for income. And this is why we have tried to invent something small and economical for them, a student said. Now, through this mini tractor, farmers with small land will also be able to plow all the corners of the fields, which was not possible with big size tractors.

It is important to mention that the model of this mini tractor designed by Shivani, Abhishek, Apeksha and Gajendra of BIT, Gorakhpur was selected as the second best model in the national level competition held at IIT BHU.
