New licences would be issued if traders who are opposing the introduction of e-NAM at the market yard, failed to switch over to e-trading immediately. The farmers are suffering due to suspension of trading by the traders at Asia’s biggest chilli market for the past 10 days against the the introduction of e-NAM. Traders should resume business at the earliest and abide by the decision taken by the NTR Market Yard management pertaining to implementation of e-NAM, he said.
