    Prime Minister Narendra Modi will flag off the 100th Kisan Rail from Sangola in Maharashtra to Shalimar in West Bengal at 4:30 pm today through video conferencing.

    The multi-commodity train service will carry vegetables such as cauliflower, capsicum, cabbage, drumsticks, chillies, onion, as well as fruits like grapes, oranges, pomegranate, banana and custard apple.

    Loading and unloading of perishable commodities will be permitted at all enroute stoppages with no bar on size of consignment.

    The Central Government has extended a subsidy of 50 per cent on transportation of fruits and vegetables. Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar and Railways Minister Piyush Goyal will also be present on the occasion.

    Sources reports that the first Kisan Rail was introduced from Devlali to Danapur on 7th of August this year, which was further extended upto Muzaffarpur.

    As a result of good response from the farmers, its frequency was also increased from weekly to three days in a week.

    Kisan Rail has been a game changer in ensuring fast transportation of agriculture produce across the nation. It provides a seamless supply chain of perishable produce.
