Pertinently, since its inception, Punjab State Agricultural Marketing Board (PSAMB) has always worked for society’s benefit, including farmers and the general public in agriculture. For this purpose, Punjab Mandi Board has consistently taken various initiatives set up by the Government of Punjab (GOP) and Government of India (GOI).

Significant decisions were taken up by Punjab Mandi Board management in establishing a robust mandi system within the State of Punjab. Other Indian states have always taken up Punjab State as an example state in agriculture, especially Punjab Mandi Board department.

In continuation of this, Punjab Mandi Board had also taken up initiatives in Information Technology to reach the farmer community and the general public.
