Kisan mela is organized twice in every year by State/Central Agricultural Universities, one each in Kharif and Rabi season in agriculturally backward areas. Organization of this type of mela encourages new technologies in farming and educates farmers about these technologies.

Government of India grants funds to all State/ Central Agricultural Universities to conduct Kisan Mela in agriculturally backward areas to acquaint the farmers of the region about new discoveries in the field of farming.

The fund granted by Government to organize Kisan Fair can be utilized for following activities:
  • For hiring vehicle to bring farmers to the Kisan Mela site.

  • For arranging refreshments for participants and visitors of Kisan Mela.
  • For setting up tents, chairs, tables, etc at mela site.
