Theelectronic spot platform for agricultural commodities of BSE India – “BSE E-Agricultural Markets Ltd. (BEAM)” signed Agreement with Maharashtra State Cooperative Development Corporation (MSCTDC) in Nashik on 10 Aug 2021 at MSCTDC office. The Agreement is aimed at leveraging the customized e-market solutions of BEAM to MSCTDC. The Agreement would enable both parties to collaborate with meaningful outcomes for the smallholder farmers (SHFs) in the tribal region of the state.

Commenting on the development Shri Nitin K Patil (IAS), Managing Director, MSCTDC said “With this Agreement, MSCTDC would get access to market technologies of BEAM. This would help us in more competitive price discovery of our produce procured from the tribal farmers. This, in turn is likely to help us in serving our farmers in the tribal regions of the state better.”
Shri Rajesh Sinha, CEO, BEAM said “BSE set up BEAM with an objective to enhance access of its market technologies for the benefit of smallholder farmers. With our agreement with MSCTDC, BEAM has taken a significant step towards meeting this objective. Access to regulated and transparent marketplace, direct access to multiple buyers, receipt of cash directly into the account of beneficiary and reduction in intermediate costs are some of the major benefits of our platform. We would work closely with MSCTDC to bring in these strengths to the farmers in the tribal region of the state.”
