    The wholesale markets created earlier are outdated and irrelevant to present context due to following developments in last 2-3 Decades:

    1. Changing Market dynamics
    2. Advancement of New technologies across the globe and national level.
    3. Introduction of online trading with amendment of Arunachal Pradesh Agriculture Produce & Livestock Marketing (APLM) Act 2017 and implementation of E-NAM etc.
