The portal functions under the aegis of the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers' Welfare, GoI.
The NAM Portal provides a single-window service for all Agriculture Produce Market Committee (APMC) related information and services which includes commodity arrivals, quality & prices, provision to respond to trade offers, and electronic payment settlement directly into farmers' accounts and helping them for better market access.
