In its new initiate ‘farm gate to home gate’, a part of NAFED’s easy market scheme, the cooperative agency will buy kitchen items from farmers and make it available to the public, thus doing away with middlemen and bringing down the prices.

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit inaugurated the initiate on Friday.

The NAFED will offer seven varieties of pulses, five varieties of spices, which are commonly used, sugar, tea, rice and edible oil at its outlets. Dikshit said it will bring down monthly kitchen expenses by 25 to 30 per cent.
