An E-Trading Platform has been unveiled by Narendra Modi. This platform is expected to help the farmers in the way that they could leverage better prices. At present, products from 365 wholesale markets would be traded. However, this will increase with time.
It is said that by the year 2018, the number would increase to 585.
According to reports, it would benefit stakeholders and the farmers.
On one hand, it is seemed as a perfect platform, on the other hand, it also has certain limitations. It can be explained with an example – there are almost 7,000 wholesale markets in India.

But, it is estimated that only 8% of the markets would be able to use the trading platform.
Farmers were left with very little bargaining power, according to a very old law that dates back to almost 50 years from now.
With an aim to protect the farmers, Agriculture Produce Marketing Committee Act was launched. But, this introduced middlemen in the market. This in turn, deprived the farmers from good price rates.
The new mantra for BJP leaders – increase social media followers or forget about UP polls. All the BJP leaders wishing to get tickets in the UP polls are told that the number of social media followers would be considered as one of the most important factor for the eligibility in 2017 Assembly UP polls.
It is said that the leaders should have 25,000 followers or likes on social media. This news has shaken all those leaders who possess little or no followers on the social media platform.
In line with the reports, Shamli MLA has 12,856 followers on Facebook, while BJP’s state president has almost 10,000 followers on Twitter. He seems quite confident to reach the target in the period of 3 months.
Further, BJP’s Bijnor MP has a total of almost 2,986 friends. Also, he doesn’t have a fan page on Facebook. BJP MP from Meerut has 13,957 likes.
A member quoted that the popularity of any leader is judged by the quality of work done in his particular area and not by the Facebook or twitter followers. Also, not all leaders have accounts on social media.
‘Make in India’ initiative may soon get the support of some Chinese mobile companies, as they will consider various manufacturing possibilities present in India. According to sources, this would be golden chance for this initiative.
Indian mobile phone market is one of the most competitive markets in the world. Thus, manufacturing the phones in India might certainly be a wise decision for the Chinese firms.
It is estimated that by 2017, India might become the second largest smartphone market, as the manufacturers from china are interested in joint ventures with Indian companies. So, this would be a tough competition with other countries.
The component suppliers will also come with the Chinese manufacturers. Thus, it would be easier to manufacture the phones locally. This is actually very important to establish an ecosystem for mobile phones in India.
According to the market experts, this time is perfect for such a venture, as the China market faces saturation.
As per sources, some of the component makers that would be participating in the venture would be:
|Wind-Mobi||Camera King||Far-Sighted Mobile|
However, companies that have already ventured into India are:
India will certainly provide a full-fledged manufacturing platform to the Chinese manufacturers.

PM Narendra Modi believes firmly that Hindi language will soon be one of the top languages in the digital world. The Prime Minister noted that the present language market is very huge and wide. Thus, many companies can leverage the opportunity by developing the apps at the earliest.
While inaugurating the 10th Vishwa Hindi Sammelan in Bhopal at Lal Parade ground, Modi told about various steps on preserving the varied endangered languages.
The importance of Hindi can be judged with the fact that today the importance of Hindi content on web boosted by 94% than ever.
Further, at the conference, he pointed to varied concerns of scholars that almost 90% of the worldwide 6,000 languages face the unavoidable risk of becoming relics or heirloom from the past.
Modi said that in the upcoming days, 3 languages viz. Chinese, English and Hindi would be highly influential in the modern digital world.
This can be even recognized in Modi’s efforts when he started to make his tweets multilingual. The multilingual tweets also included Hindi to cater to the Hindi-speaking audience.
Adding to describing the importance of Hindi, Modi says that neglecting Hindi or forgetting the said language would be a huge loss for the country.
He says that though his mother tongue is Gujarati, then also he thought at times that what would have happened is he had not known Hindi.
He adds that the focus would not be just on promoting Hindi languages, but also the other endangered languages.
With this, it seems that Hindi and other languages would surely get a boost just like his ‘Give It Up’ scheme that motivated a number of LPG users in the past few weeks.
He stresses that language should be inclusive rather than exclusive.
He also recalled his previous days when he was a tea seller in Gujarat.
He said that he actually learnt Hindi language while selling tea to the traders of Uttar Pradesh who used to travel to Gujarat for buying buffaloes.
