Rural Haat Markets(Weekly Bazars)

The Rural Haats (RH) managed by Village Panchayats are the best examples of direct interface between farmers and consumers. There are 3500 Rural Haats in Maharashtra. These are held once or twice in a week. The management of these Haats rests with local authority viz., Village Panchayat or Municipality.

However, these Haats are held in dusty places and conditions are most unhygienic. The Haats have no basic infrastructure facilities like sheds for sellers and pathways for buyers. Therefore, it is proposed to modernize around 8 to 14 rural Haats managed by Village Panchayats in every district so that total 300 RHs are modernized in the state by providing basic infrastructure.
