NEW DELHI: Processes at this channel may be slow, but expected to be steady -- and may pick up pace.

The issues of India?s agriculture sector and related jobs, on which around 62 per cent of the world?s second-most populous country relies, often take a backseat on television shows and discussions.

Tender format and tender document are available on http://www.tenderwizard.com/PB, e-tender link in Doordarshan website, http://www.ddindia.gov.in/, and e-procurement portal (CPP) www.eprocure.gov.in.
