Due to poor connectivity, the people residing in rural areas like Mebo do not get any awareness about the advertisement and opportunity about the scheme like RKVY-RAFTAAR has to offer to Innovators and Agri-Horti Startups of Arunachal and it’s neighboring states. This is the reason why an outreach program was organized maintaining all COVID-19 SoPs, informed sources from CHF RABI.
