New Delhi, April 18
Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar on Monday launched two new portals, including one for registration of pesticides.
The second portal is for documentation related to imports and exports of agri-products and plants. The portals — CROP (Comprehensive Registration of Pesticides) and PQMS (Plant Quarantine Management System) — aim at improving ease of doing business.
Speaking at the launch, Tomar said the portals will make the process of pesticides registration and documentation process for export-import simple and transparent. The government is committed to make improvements in systems, if required, he added.
Highlighting the importance of agriculture in the Indian economy, Tomar stressed on the need to strengthen the sector. The country is not only self-sufficient in foodgrains production but also has surplus stocks which is attributed to the efforts of the farmers’ community, research done by farm scientists and the farmer-friendly policies of the government, he added.
