First Kisan Rail from South India chugs off

India’s first ‘Kisan Rail’ from Anantapuramu chugged off on Wednesday (September 9) carrying 322 tonnes of fresh fruits to Azadpur Mandi in Delhi.

Union Minister for Agriculture Narendra Singh Tomar and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy flagged off the inaugural Kisan Rail, the second in the country via a video conference.

The Kisan Rail is planned to be run once a week now but as harvesting picks up after October, the frequency may be increased from January based on the demand.
