Moreover, Mr. Jagdish Chaudhari highlighted the main cause of affordable agricultural labs as the benefit of small farmers and hence lifting them up. He stated that they encourage second and third year students to join in for the cause as it forms a long term window for the students to work on. As per their experience with the previous six labs established in other regions, the prototypes have been a stuck point and henceforth aims for going beyond it by productizing. The labs will lead to tremendous opportunity and hold hands in making India Atmanirbhar. Further, Dr. Amar Buchade showcased numerous events organized, awards and achievements received.
