e-Uparjan: Re-inventing the procurement system through digitisation in Madhya Pradesh

The e-Uparjan initiative uses versatile technological innovations in implementation and shows considerable impact in streamlining operations for the speedy and transparent transfer of Minimum Support Price (MSP) dues into the accounts of farmers directly. This initiative strengthens procurement operations, develops a near real-time reporting mechanism and a decision support system for enhancing the forecasting, monitoring and tracking capabilities of the Madhya Pradesh Government. Many farmers are now willing to sell their produce at the procurement centres created by the government.
