Consider the following about‘National Agriculture Market’ (NAM) scheme.
1.NAM is a “virtual” market but it has a physical market (mandi) at the back end.
2.NAM is being implemented as a Central Sector Scheme through Agri-Tech Infrastructure Fund (ATIF).
Select the correct answer using the codes given below.
The National Agriculture Market (NAM) is envisaged as a Pan-India electronic trading portal which seeks to network the existing Agricultural Produce Market Committees (APMCs) and other market yards to create a unified national market for agricultural commodities. NAM is a “virtual” market but it has a physical market (mandi) at the back end.
NAM will be implemented as a Central Sector Scheme through Agri-Tech Infrastructure Fund (ATIF).
For integration with the e-platform the States/UTs will need to undertake prior reforms in respect of:
a single license to be valid across the State,
single point levy of market fee and
provision for electronic auction as a mode for price discovery.
NAM is said to have the following advantages:
For the farmers, NAM promises more options for sale. It would increase his access to markets through warehouse based sales and thus obviate the need to transport his produce to the mandi.
For the local trader in the mandi / market, NAM offers the opportunity to access a larger national market for secondary trading.
Bulk buyers, processors, exporters etc. benefit from being able to participate directly in trading at the local mandi / market level through the NAM platform, thereby reducing their intermediation costs.
The gradual integration of all the major mandis in the States into NAM will ensure common procedures for issue of licences, levy of fee and movement of produce. In a period of 5-7 years Union Cabinet expects significant benefits through higher returns to farmers, lower transaction costs to buyers and stable prices and availability to consumers.
The NAM will also facilitate the emergence of value chains in major agricultural commodities across the country and help to promote scientific storage and movement of agri goods.

Consider the following pairs:
1.Divya Nayan : Surveillance drone
2.Whanganui : New Zealand
3.National Large Solar Telescope : Location- Laddakh
4.Falcon 9 : ISRO
Which of the above pairs are correctly matched?
Whanganui river in New Zealand has become the first in the world to be recognised as a living entity with the legal status of a person after a 170-year battle by the local Maori people. The nation’s parliament passed a bill to allow Whanganui River –known by the Maoris as Te Awa Tupua - to represent its own interests and advocate on its own behalf.
Chandigarh-based Central Scientific Instruments Organisation (CSIO), under the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) has developed a reading machine for visually challenged, the most advanced so far. The sleek scanner named "Divya Nayan" scans any script and read it aloud for visually challenged to understand.The portable device is based on the principle of contact scanning of a printed document and converting it into speech.
National Large Solar Telescope (NLST): Proposed by the Bengaluru-based Indian Institute of Astrophysics (IIAP), an autonomous research institute wholly financed by the Indian government, the NLST project involves installation of a “2-m class state-of-the-art solar telescope” in Ladakh. NLST will allow Indian scientists and researchers to carry out cutting edge research aimed at understanding the fundamental processes in the sun. Ladakh region was chosen for the project as a site with optimal atmospheric properties like good number of sunshine hours with good astronomical seeing was a critical requirement.As per IIAP, the telescope will enable observations with an unprecedented high spatial resolution that will provide crucial information on the nature of magnetic fields in the solar atmosphere. It will be one of the few telescopes in the world that will have a capability to do both day and night time astronomy.
Falcon 9 is a two-stage rocket designed and manufactured by SpaceX for the reliable and safe transport of satellites and the Dragon spacecraft into orbit. Falcon 9’s simple two-stage configuration minimizes the number of separation events -- and with nine first-stage engines, it can safely complete its mission even in the event of an engine shutdown.Falcon 9 made history in 2012 when it delivered Dragon into the correct orbit for rendezvous with the International Space Station, making SpaceX the first commercial company ever to visit the station. Since then SpaceX has made multiple flights to the space station, both delivering and returning cargo for NASA. Falcon 9, along with the Dragon spacecraft, was designed from the outset to deliver humans into space and under an agreement with NASA, SpaceX is actively working toward that goal.
