Straw Burning Minimised in Fazilka - Vikram Ahuja

‪#‎BrandFazilka‬ - India begins here.

We all are worried about latest satellite image released by NASA on Punjab straw burning in Punjab, red dots showing burning of straw in paddy fields of Punjab. If you notice image clearly, the bottom most corner of Punjab map, which is a district Fazilka and partially Mukatsar is having all Green and there are people who made this impossible possible. Credit for this massive achievement goes to our green crusader Mr. Vikram Aditya Ahuja and team Zamindara Farmsolutions at Fazilka Anu Nagpal. Under his startup venture, he trained educated unemployed youth, imparted training, gave them set of types of equipment Bailer, Rake, Reaper and Trollies. More than 1000 young farming entrepreneurs, covering most the villages in Fazilka and Mukatsar district, now collect straw from nearby villages and send them to nearest thermal plant to produce electricity and make fields ready with direct seeding of the new crop. His work has not only benefited the environment but given employment to many. IIM Ahmedabad included his success story in their MBA program on Agri-Business. Proud moment for all Fazilites. With all that, now Fazilka is becoming a place for all social entrepreneurs. Three cheers for Team Zamindara Farmsolutions and their Team Leader Vikram. Don't worry, we are here to take care Mother Earth.
