The project HORTNET - Horticultural Informatics Network perhaps is first of its kind in the e-Agriculture history of the country, where total transparency has been ensured in all the processes of workflow i.e., online application filing, authentication, processing and online payment to the beneficiaryâ€™s bank account besides SMS based e-alerting is being done online effectively and efficiently. The objective of the project is to promote holistic growth of the horticulture sector covering fruits, vegetables, roots and tuber crops, mushroom, spices, flowers, aromatic plants, cashew and cocoa.
Farmers can apply online 24x7, from anywhere for the schemes of Horticulture Department by avoiding middlemen. They can also check the status of their application online. The system credits the subsidies to farmers bank accounts directly and intimates the same to their mobiles via SMS. The monthly progress reporting and its consolidation helps in conducting review meetings and release of funds. The system helps in releasing of funds transparently based on actual reports. The system automates the complete workflow in beneficiary selection and subsidy and input supplies distribution. The system is interfaced with Bank software so that acquitances are immediately effected. It communicates to the beneficiaries through SMS.
The project HORTNET was started to bring total transparency, for digital inclusion of farming community, to avoid delays, to remove subjectivity, to eliminate errors associate with manual systems and to link all stakeholders. The scope of the system is entire country wherever the National Horticulture Mission Project is being implemented.
