Farmers in the district were given training on using the ‘e-Adangal’ app to record details about crops on their lands, here on Saturday. Additional chief secretary K Satyagopal headed the training session.
Although the app was launched in March by the state government by the Tamil Nadu e-governance authority (TNeGA), it is yet to gain popularity among farmers.
With the introduction of the app, farmers need not approach village administrative officer (VAO) to manually enter details in the Adangal register. Farmers can upload the information of crop, yield and trees in the field on the app by their own.
While village administrative officers continue to maintain the registers, in case of any difference in the register and the data in the application, it will be manually verified and rectified. The main objective of the application is to quickly access information about the damage caused by flood or drought.
Satyagopal said that the application can be downloaded on the Google Play Store.
During the training session, farmers suggested the additional chief secretary to simplify the task by appointing a staff at the VAO office to take care of uploading the information on the application.
The additional chief secretary said that farmers unable to use the application can avail the facility at e-sevai centres.
