Better quality hybrid seeds will be made available to the farmers to improve crop yield.The residents will be made aware of the IOT based applications like automatic farm monitoring systems, Power management systems, Pollution management, etc. The residents will be given the basic technical knowledge of using smart phones to meet their daily needs like paying electricity bills, online payments, banking, digital marketing of their products, attending online classes, seeking medical help online, etc.
