NEW DELHI, JULY 11, 2019: UNION Minister for Chemicals and Fertilizersi D.V. Sadananda Gowda yesterday launched the Phase-II of the Direct Benefit Transfer of Fertilizer Subsidy (DBT 2.0), here.

DBT in fertilizer subsidy is such a step in the direction of bringing ease of living in the lives of farmers through use of modern technology and plugging leakages, pilferages and black marketing, the Minister added.

The new initiatives of DBT 2.0 are as under:

DBT Dashboards:In order to facilitate accurate information gathering anddecision-makingw.r.t. the position of requirement/supply/availability of various fertilizers at National, State and District levels, theDoFhas developed various dashboards. These dashboards provide various reports regarding the Fertilizer Stock position at ports, plants, in States, at District levels;Proportionate requirement for the season and availability of stocks at various levels; Top 20 buyers;Frequentbuyers; Retailers not selling fertilizers etc.The reports would facilitate real-time monitoring of the availability and sale of fertilizers within each State/UT. Public can access the dashboards by clicking thee-urvarakwebsite ofDoF( www.urvarak.nic.in ).

PoS3.0 Software:TheMulti-lingual facility wouldprovideAadharvirtual ID optionforregistration,login and sale activity in DBT software.It would also have a provision for area-specific, crop-specific recommendations based on Soil Health Card (SHC) data.Further, it would capture sale to farmers, mixture manufacturers, planter association separately.

DesktopPoSVersion:Keeping in view the various operational challenges viz. limited PoS vendors, rush of sales due to peak season etc. the department has developed amultilingualdesktop version of PoS software as an alternative or added facility to PoS devices. Retailers withlaptops and computersystems can use high-speed broadband service for fertilizer sales. The Desktop software is more robust and secure as the application is developed and handled directly from the central HQ team atDoF.
