Digital Kissan Karobar Scheme (DKKS)

Digital marketing is one of the popular concepts and methodologies used in today’s business world. Digital marketing also called online marketing, is the promotion of brands to connect with potential customers using the Internet and other forms of digital communication.

The literacy rate of Gilgit-Baltistan is considerably high than other parts of the country and after the inception of 4G services across Gilgit-Baltistan, the tendency for the usage of internet services have been increased manifold. On the other hand, world top class fruits like cherry, almond, apricot, pine net, pear, etc are widely produced and the wastage ratio is more than 30% due to the non-availability of an adequate marketplace.
