An online portal for farmers (Kisan) to cater to the needs and interest of them via SMS
The mKisan Portal is operated by the State and Central Government of India. The portal enables farmers working in the agriculture sector and allied sectors to provide information in their regional language and choice of preferences according to the practices they do, via an SMS over mobile. This program is issued under the scheme of the National Governance Plan Agriculture. The website of mKisan Portal is segmented into different pages that accommodate the interest of the farmers in form of Unstructured supplementary Service data (USSD), pull SMS, push SMS, and Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS) services that uphold the farmers and other shareholders to receive messages or broadcast their messages. Not only this, the website offers a web-based and a Smartphone-based mobile application (that can be downloaded from the website) for the farmers.
