North Eastern Regional Agricultural Marketing Corporation Limited (NERAMAC), inter alia, facilitates processing of horticulture produce; assists processing units to market their products; and helps in developing linkages of farmers with the market. 

The data related to total number of farmers being provided support by the said corporation is not centrally maintained. NERAMAC in pursuance of the objectives mentioned above, has provided support to large number of farmers, particularly those growing pineapple, ginger and large cardamom. 

NERAMAC has engaged with some Self-Help Groups and farmers groups to serve as an aggregator and provide marketing support to them. It has also undertaken marketing of processed items sourced from local entrepreneurs. 

This was stated by the Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr. Jitendra Singh in written reply to a question by Shri Janak Ram and Shri Vishnu Dayal Ram in the Lok Sabha today.
