The J & K government in the recent past has taken a number of steps to change the lives of the rural population. They are trying to do the interventions with the help of modern science and technology bringing the new researches to the fields.

The Government of Jammu and Kashmir is also trying to promote agro processing industries to provide better market linkages to the people to sell their produce.

Recently LG Manoj Sinha stressed the need to document the impact of GIs on promoting the products. He further reiterated the government’s commitment to implement the Policy on holistic development of the Agriculture & allied sector in letter and spirit.

Additional Chief Secretary Agriculture Production Department recently said that the two-day workshop provides an opportunity to discuss, promote and capitalise the unique niche products of North-Western Himalayas.

The Lt Governor also inaugurated an exhibition on potential indigenous products which can be registered for GIs and inspected stalls displaying around 40 unique and niche products of Jammu Kashmir installed by the entrepreneurs and the government departments.

If the GI tagging is done on the products in a proper manner and more products are brought under this ambit, there would be a complete change in the economic conditions of farmers and other such people like artisans as they will get better deals in the markets.
