The fertilizer business of Tata Chemicals Ltd. (TCL) is mainly concentrated in the Indo-Gangetic plains having the most fertile soils and being the main grain cropped area in the country. Tata Kisan Kendras (TKK) were initially setup as one stop agricultural input shops for fulfilling the Indian farmers requirements, from seed sowing to post-harvest activities in the year 1998. The TKKs enabled farmers to purchase required products and also get expert information. Four years later the company conducted a strategic review of the TKKs and decided to evolve its focus and give it a greater thrust as a distribution tool. Finally after an extensive branding exercise, the TKKs evolved into Tata Kisan Sansar (TKS)-a one stop farmer solution shop. The TKS network operates on a hub and spoke model wherein the company owned Tata Krishi Vikas Kendras (TKVK) act as the hub with the franchisee TKS as the spoke. The TKVK serves as a resource centre for both the TKS (franchisee) and the farmer. Each TKVK contains the entire infrastructure necessary to work as a comprehensive resource centre to fulfill the needs of the TKS network. Every TKVK is equipped with an administrative office, a training hall, a crop clinic, a soil-testing laboratory, a research and development farm, a storage godown, an exhibition hall and a TKS retail outlet, all under one roof. Each TKVK has a command area around sixty km and covers forty TKS. The franchisee TKS typically operates as a branded retail outlet of TCL, providing agricultural inputs, farm equipments, farm advisory services, farmer credit financing and produce buyback arrangements. Each TKS spans a radius about eight km and covers about sixty villages. The TKS network seems to be expanding with the strategy of exploring the potential of the states of Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and West Bengal that have a majority share in TCLs fertilizer business. Moreover, each TKS seeks to service one mandi and further expansions are carried out in locations where there are gaps in servicing a mandi through TKS.
