Also, as a part of motivating the farmers, a competition was held to award the best performing PPS in terms of paddy production in the last Kharif season amongst the adopted PPSs/villages under the Agriculture Project of OIRDS.

While ensuring support from Oil India, the members also urged the farmers to reap maximum benefits from the project.

The farmers from various PPSs also shared their experiences at the interactive session and expressed their satisfaction with the support extended by OIRDS under its agriculture project. They appreciated the kind of training & other handholding support provided to them along with the supply of high-quality paddy and vegetable seeds and organic manure to increase production. The farmers talked about increased and much better production post-intervention of OIRDS compared to previous years.
