Krishishakti tractors commercially launched in West Bengal.

The CSIR - Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute (CMERI), Durgapur, commercially launched 'Krishishakti', - the low cost tractor in West Bengalfor the benefit of small farmers in the state. A batch of tractors will be sold to the farmers of North Bengalthrough the dealer.

For the sake of farmers with small land holdings, CSIR-CMERI had developed Krishishakti - a 12 hp tractor and the technology was officially launched in 2014 at New Delhi.

Since then, the technology has been transferred to a private company in Howrah for production and commercialization in West Bengal. With continuous technical assistance of CSIR-CMERI, the licensee private firm established the assembly line for Krishishakti tractor at Howrah with an initial capacity of 100 tractors per year. This tractor is very much suitable for small sized land due to its size and lower turning radius.

Officials said that compared to other available large sized tractor, the operation and maintenance cost of 'Krishishakti' is much lower. Due to this, small farmers may be in a position to have the ownership of 'Krishishakti' tractors instead of cultivating with a walking tractor or a hired one.
