Agriculture is the most important sector of the Indian economy. It is the most important source of employment for the majority of the work force in the country. A major population in India is engaged in agriculture. Among that highest percentage was in rice (paddy) sector. Rice is the major stable food of the country. Relesing of work force to sector other than agriculture, it is important to develop the country. To release the work force in paddy sector mechanization plays a big role. To feed growing population is a huge challenge. Mechanization of paddy sector will lead to work higher productivity with releasing of work force to other sector. The objective of this project is to design a rice (paddy) transplanting mechanism to transplant paddy seedling by small scale former in the country. The manual paddy (rice) transplanter make this provision for the user, which eliminates above observed problems like cost, skilled operator, complicated mechanism, fuel for operation etc.
