Current Affairs: KICCI: Farmers have opportunity to turn into entrepreneurs

Kisan Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KICCI) 

Now farmers have opportunity to turn into entrepreneurs
KICCI Scheme:
  • In Uttar Pradesh and other parts of the country, with a new initiative, now farmers too have the opportunity to turn into entrepreneurs. On the lines of industrial forums like Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry and Dalit Indian Chamber of Commerce & Industry, a group of farmers-turned-entrepreneurs have formed Kisan Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry or KICCI, to help farmers to take up new agrarian business ventures.
  • KICCI's tagline is `Kisan Banega Udyogpati' or Farmer will become an industrialist. One of its directors Umesh Gangwar said that it is the age of start-ups but ignorance about schemes and processes keeps farmers out of the development loop.
  • KICCI aims at economic empowerment of farmers so that the vicious circle of poverty breaks on its own. There are 60 primary members to begin with. The body , which would work as a not for profit and apolitical entity, would hold its first convention in November 2016.
