Ans C

e-Choupal is an India-based business initiative by ITC Limited that provides Internet access to rural farmers. The purpose is to inform and empower them and, as a result, to improve the quality of agricultural goods and the quality of life for farmers.

ITC Limited (formerly India Tobacco Company Limited) is a consumer product and agribusiness conglomerate in India known for their production of cigarettes, specialty paper, food products and packaging services. Through the e-Choupal initiative, ITC has created more than 6,500 e-Choupal computer stations in rural areas that serve an average of six hundred farmers each. Using this technology, farmers may order supplies, learn about best agricultural practices, receive weather reports and read about pricing for crops throughout the region.

Farmers can use that information to their own prices. They also obtain higher profit margins because they’re no longer forced to sell through a middleman. ITC Limited also benefits from the initiative, by simplifying its supply chains and increasing its profits.
