With a majority of the country’s population involved in Agriculture and allied activities as their primary occupation, the government is committed to achieve holistic development of the farm sector. One of the steps in this direction is to strengthen the food processing value chain. The recently launched Pradhan Mantri Kisan SAMPADA Yojana seeks to supplement agriculture, modernize processing and decrease agri-waste. Implemented by the Ministry of Food Processing Industries, PMKSY is an umbrella scheme encompassing various schemes of the Ministry. The scheme is a comprehensive package which will result in creation of modern infrastructure with efficient supply chain management from farm gate to retail outlet. To know more information about the scheme, do visit the section “Schemes for You”.

As the country is involved full-fledged in promoting Swachhta everywhere, an initiative has been taken to maintain Swachhta in the cyberspace too. The "Cyber Swachhta Kendra" (Botnet Cleaning and Malware Analysis Centre) is a part of the Government of India's Digital India initiative under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY). It aims to create a secure cyber space by detecting botnet infections in India and to notify, enable cleaning and securing systems of end users so as to prevent further infections. In the section “InfoSec for You” we provide details of this initiative.
