Wheat Procurement

The Punjab government buys 40% of the wheat produced in the province every year to stabilize market price of this staple crop. PITB has developed a centralized system based on an android application to verify and record data of farmers from whom wheat is purchased by the government. Each farmer’s data is recorded through the application at the procurement centre. The centralized system provides real-time reports of wheat procurement process from each centre. The application has an inbuilt feedback system that sends SMSs and makes automated calls to farmers to gather their feedback on the procurement process. The centralized system enables real-time monitoring, improved transparency and accountability in the wheat procurement process.
