The saga of Kisan Raja’s stupendous success Kisan Raja is a revolutionary device (invented and manufactured by Vinfinet Technologies Pvt. Ltd.) that help bring the fruits of technology to rural India – particularly to farmers and unemployed youth. The solution allows farmers to remotely control the agricultural motor using their mobile or landline. An IVRS (Interactive Voice Response System) in local language helps in making selections for switching the motor ON or OFF. Farmers also receive voice alerts for various situations like Faulty Power Supply, Motor not Starting, Lack of Water in the Well/Bore, and any attempt of Device / Motor Theft.

Kisan Raja is a vastly superior innovation in terms of functionality, safety and user-friendliness, when compared to low-end ‘auto-starters’ available in rural areas. Launched in July 2010, this patentpending innovation has been recognized by many leading institutions. Currently, the device is being targeted at influential farmers in the village who have larger Land holdings. This select group of people subsequently influences decision-making of the majority. Awards and Recognitions 1. Winner of Sankalp Awards 2012 2. Winner of India Semiconductor Association (ISA) Technovation Awards 2011 in the ‘OEM Consumer – Best Indian Startup’ Category 3. 1st Runner-up at Samsung Innovation Quotient conducted by Samsung and CNBC-TV18 4. Winner of Wantrapreneur 2011 (‘Startup – Agri’ category) conducted by Villgro, Chennai 5. Among the Finalists of Mahindra Spark The Rise 6. Among the Winners of the 3rd Indian School of Business (ISB) iDiya Challenge 7. Winner of Navkriti 2011 conducted by NITIE (National Institute of Industrial Engineering) About Vijay Bhaskar Reddy Mr Vijay Bhaskar Reddy hails from rural Andhra Pradesh. He completed his education from IIT Madras before working for companies like Intel and Cisco. He always wanted to do something for the farmer community. He got the idea of Kisan Raja, when he saw his brother going to the field in the middle of the night to switch ON/OFF the irrigation motor pump set. This was the moment when Mr. Reddy decided that he would create an easy-to-operate technology solution that would improve the lives of farmers. He had joined Vinfinet Technologies Pvt. Ltd. as CEO which was already established to provide career-oriented IT trainings for unemployed rural youth and launched an IVRS based motor controlling and monitoring application.
