Telangana Sona RNR 15048 is a blessing for producers (farmers), millers, traders and consumers, and particularly for health-conscious rice lovers. It is a climate smart variety that could save 2 to 4 tmc ft of water besides saving ₹20 crore on pesticide use for rice blast attack for every one lakh acres of cultivation compared to longer duration varieties.
Under this project, GCOT is in discussions with existing ecommerce platforms like Flipkart, Amazon and other platforms to reach out to as many customers as possible across India and also International players to reach rice importers of other countries. GCOT is working in designing our own Farmer to Institution (F2I), Farmer to Business (F2B) and Farmer to Customer (F2C) models using appropriate supply chain and value chain interventions to make this success. GCOT has come into an understanding with one Start-up Company (Deccan Mudra) run by a group of young entrepreneurs with lots of ideas and energy and also want to contribute the rural India growth. GCOT is working with the Indian Diaspora and NRI communities across the globe to get connected and establish an active marketing channel to promote Farm produce from Telangana State and also look at establishing outlets focused on Telangana Farmers produce as a long term plan, we do have expertise in getting FDA and other approvals in terms of export enabling. About 2 Million Telugu Diaspora refers to Telugu people who live outside their homeland of Indian states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. They are predominantly found in North America, Europe, Australia, Caribbean, Gulf, Africa and other regions around the world.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Investments:
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) allows large and small businesses to enact positive change to do what is right not only for their bottom line but also benefit financially while building trust with their consumers. The more socially responsible the company, the more supportive the community and consumers become. CSR helps build trust, raise awareness, and encourage social change. Although there are tens of thousands of companies doing their part, large global corporations’ efforts have far-reaching results that can impact major world issues from hunger and health to global warming.
CSR comes in many forms, even the smallest company impacts social change by making a simple donation to a local food bank. Some of the most common examples of CSR includes; Reducing carbon footprints, Improving labor policies, Participating in fair trade, Charitable giving, Volunteering in the community, Corporate policies that benefit the environment, Socially and environmentally conscious investments.
GCOT has been trying to answer, what can be called the soul of a village? how can it be identified? and how can one map the path of the village’s transformation? .
GCOT is working to develop a template for a study of a village, namely VILLAGE MONOGRAPH, which would help provide a road map for its development that is specific for the village. GCOT has drawn up a template for the micro study of the village and its first case study is of Podagatlapally in Ravulapalem mandal of East Godavari of Andhra Pradesh. The study taken up to mark 150th birth anniversary celebrations of Mahatma Gandhi is aptly called ‘150 dimensions of an Indian village. GCOT roped in a number of organizations for the study. The report shows that the village is spread across 3.5 kilometres radius with a population of about 7,000. It was estimated that, the village was established about 750 years ago as the present existing temples — Muthyalamma, Poleramma and Somalamma — date back to that period. Village monograph of Podagatlapally village in Ravulapalem Mandal of East Godavari of Andhra Pradesh has been done with the sponsorship of Sri Kalidindi Vijay Kumar Raju garu, Chairman of KVK Group.
