The initiative aims to support local organic farmers and enable them to sell their produce at a lower price, benefitting both the farmers and the residents. He stated that the district is one of the drought-prone areas, and this move is part of their social contribution to empower local farmers and promote sustainable farming practices.

Moreover, the police department is developing a mobile application that will connect the organic farmers with consumers, bridging the communication gap between them and the residents. The initiative is expected to establish a rapport with the locals who visit the police station to buy organic vegetables.

Organic produce is known for its high nutritional value as it contains more antioxidants and flavonoids than non-organic produce. The process of organic farming is also more eco-friendly as it avoids the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers, reducing soil contamination and preserving the biodiversity.

This initiative has opened up a new market for organic farmers, promoting their produce and creating awareness about the benefits of organic farming among the residents. It will also help the farmers to establish a direct connection with the consumers and earn a fair price for their produce.

Tuljapur Inspector Adinath Kashid added that this may help the police to make them their eyes and ears in remote areas, strengthening community policing. Atul Kulkarni's revolutionary move is a win-win situation for everyone involved, including the police officers, and is expected to strengthen community policing by establishing a rapport with the locals.

Above initiative is an inspiration to everyone, and we hope that more such initiatives will be taken to promote organic farming & sustainable development!
