With the rise of technology, most of the Government agencies are going for the digital platform for smooth operation and the new member in the list is the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA). The planning to inherit IT Technology was going from the last couple of years intending to enhance the shipment process.
Apeda bets on IT-based initiatives
With time and demand, the changes were necessary, and at the right time, Apeda bets on IT-based initiatives. Now, the entire work will be paperless, electronic payment facility, online certification, virtual trade fair, and many more activities are involved in the online process.
Now, the exporters don’t have to wait for a longer time to get Registration-Cum-Membership Certification. They can apply for the same via the online method and will get the certificate in no time. The respective government authority will do the digital signature to simply the APEDA Registration process. This will help the shippers to perform the export task efficiently without any delay.
Apeda has smartly applied IT technology in the food industry by launching the tracing system for grapes, meat, peanut, and organic products. Even Basmati rice is also included in the list and APEDA Registration has already started for such products in many states such as Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Uttarakhand, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, and Jammu & Kashmir.
However, stakeholders will have to wait for some time to access the traceability features. They will get an advanced SaaS feature that is embedded with the Blockchain layer to enhance security and avoid a data breach.
Further Initiatives by APEDA
After Apeda bets on IT-based initiatives, the farmers will also get the support and they can easily sell their products anywhere via electronic mandis (e-mandi). Moreover, the exporters also get the benefit of this new initiative as they can now post their query, needs, and sales offer via online method.
In this initiative, virtual trade fair plays a key role as it became the perfect meeting place for exhibitors, visitors, and exporters to share ideas. The virtual trade fair is a one-stop solution where exporters and visitors can get all the information in one place such as fair venue, date, trade fair details, and many more. For a person who needs to showcase the product, then a virtual trade fair is the best platform. Here, he/she can communicate with the parties through video calls.
