Moreover, Mr. Jagdish Chaudhari highlighted the main cause of affordable agricultural labs as the benefit of small farmers and hence lifting them up. He stated that they encourage second and third-year students to join in for the cause as it forms a long-term window for the students to work on.

The labs will lead to tremendous opportunity and hold hands in making India Atmanirbhar. Further, Dr. Amar Buchade showcased numerous events organized, awards and achievements received.
