This paper examines Karnataka's pioneering agricultural output marketing reforms with the twin goals of assessing the state and challenges of implementation and to glean lessons from Karnataka's experience for India's e-National Agricultural Market (e-NAM). Through a field study of ten mandis across the state, we find that while Karnataka has been consistently pushing through with reforms, in the context of deeply entrenched relationships between farmers, traders and com- mission agents, the challenges of deeper reforms are significant.
Keywords: eNAM; Karnataka Model; Mandi reforms; APMC; agricultural output; marketing reforms; glean lessons; e-National Agricultural Market (e-NAM); farmers; traders; commission agents; Karnataka. (search for similar items in EconPapers)
