    I take this opportunity to thank our Farmers/Seed Growers, Seed Processing Agencies for showing their keen interest in automation of the seed certification process. I thank the team of NIC, Odisha and Uttarakhand for taking so much of pain in designing, developing and implementing the automation system with latest technology. The USS&OPCA team's effort is commendable in supporting the NIC, Odisha Team in design & developement. I am sure this automation system named "ASSCU" will go long way in addressing the issues of SPAs/SPPs, Seed Growers as well as the Officials USS&OPCA. I , as always, seek continued patronage of our valued stakeholders, cooperation of our employees.
