Bengaluru: Of all the APMC (agricultural produce market committee) reforms in India, Karnataka’s Rashtriya eMarket Services Pvt. Ltd, or ReMS, has been arguably the most popular one. The Congress-run state’s pioneering effort was mentioned even by Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he launched a national electronic trading platform called National Agriculture Market (e-NAM) earlier this year, which is supposed to operate like ReMS.
