eNam Frequently Asked Questions ?
1. What is the difference between eNAM and the existing mandi system?
eNAM is not a parallel marketing structure but rather a device to create a national network of physical mandis which can be accessed online.It seeks to leverage the physical infrastructure of the mandis through an online trading portal, enabling buyers situated even outside the Mandi/ State to participate in trading at the local level.
2. Are there any conditions for joining eNAM?
States interested to integrate their mandis with eNAM are required to carry out following three reforms in their APMC Act.a) Single trading license (Unified) to be valid across the stateb) Single point levy of market fee across the state; andc) Provision for e-auction/ e-trading as a mode of price discovery
3. How will eNAM operate?
The eNAM electronic trading platform has been created with an investment by the Government of India (through the Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers’ Welfare).It offers a “plug-in” to any market yard existing in a State (whether regulated or private). The special software developed for eNAM is available to each mandi which agrees to join the national network free of cost with necessary customization to conform to the regulations of each State Mandi Act.
4. Who will actually operate the eNAM platform?
Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers’ Welfare, Govt. of India has appointed Small Farmers’ Agribusiness Consortium (SFAC) as the Lead Implementing Agency of eNAM. SFAC will operate and maintain the eNAM platform with the help of a Strategic Partner, presently NFCL.
5. Will the APMC mandis lose out business due to eNAM?
Mandis do not lose any business. eNAM basically increases the choice of the farmer when he brings his produce to the mandi for sale. Local traders can bid for the produce, as also traders on the electronic platform sitting in other State/ Mandi. The farmer may choose to accept either the local offer or the online offer. In either case the transaction will be on the books of the local mandi and they will continue to earn the market fee. In fact, the volume of business will significantly increase as there will be greater competition for specific produce, resulting in higher market fees for the mandi.
