“In next two days, the banks might come to seize my entire office set up and I am completely left out. I have majorly innovation which can bring drastic innovation in agriculture and defense system. However, I am failed reaching out to through the proper channel,” Prajwal regrets.
“I have patent for a tiller machine which can be operated without human interference. Those machines would be half of what the cost of a tractor and women can easily use that. In addition, I have a mechanism which will get rid of the stress in tree climbing. However, an SME like mine gets no recognition,” he says, adding that what he needs is a support from the government to showcase a solution and market it through the right channel.
Prajwal has also approached many government agencies and ministers which had never yielded a fruitful expected result.
According to him, to plough in farms, there were no automated machineries till now. By using remote-controlled system for power tiller, the ploughing work has been done simple and effortless.
“Imagine women using a power tiller and doing such a tough job is really matter of concern. If remote controlled system could be adopted in the same region, this technology will be a boon to the women farmers and thereby creating income for women's farmers,” Pranjal avers.
He believes that unlike tractors, where people sit and control the machine, power tillers need somebody walking behind it to control the directions.
So, why this idea of remote-controlled? Prajwal answers that by using this technology one can avoid the strain of walking behind or along with the tiller continuously for hours together controlling its direction. And the operator operates the power tiller from a far of point without even getting into the field.
“Even an unskilled operator can operate the power tiller just by the touch of a button, thereby saving time and money required for the skilled labor. This system will encourage those farmers to restart the process of agriculture, who has stopped farming due to lack of skilled labor. Also there will be saving in fuel consumption for the power tillers,” he concludes.
With such innovation in place, this innovative SME is knocking at the doors of the central government for a help.
