J&K State Advisory Board for Development of Kissans
The establishment of J&K State Advisory Board for Development of Kisans by the Government of Jammu and Kashmir is a sincere and powerful demonstration of Government’s resolve to look into the worsening plight of farmers of the State. It would be an arm of the State Government closer to the farmers and its work would be more relevant in addressing the problems that farmers face in their daily drudgery. Although there are numerous boards based upon the markets, mandies, commodities etc in the country but the Advisory Board for Development of Kisans with a holistic and synergetic mission concentrated on welfare and development of farmers of the State is unique of its kind in the country.

The Advisor to Hon'ble Lieutenant Governor (In charge Agriculture Production Department J&K Govt.) is the Chairperson of the Board, and the Administrative Secretary Agriculture Production Department J&K Govt. is the Vice Chairman of the Board.
