IFF has submitted its comments on the consultation paper on the ‘India Digital Ecosystem for Agriculture' i.e. the Agristack. Our core suggestion is that all implementation with regards to the Agristack be halted till extensive consultations with farmers have been carried out. Beyond this, we have addressed issues of data localisation, federalism, data protection, user rights, the need for public investment, and the necessity of robust data standards.
This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://internetfreedom.in/iff-response-to-the-idea-paper-on-agristack/
