Commission agents (aadathiyas) are key players in the mandi ecosystem. The job of a commission agent may look simple on paper – buy and sell commodities, make profits, and record everything. In reality, they interact with multiple customers and suppliers every day. Keeping track of payments and inventories is a huge task. To really appreciate the work involved, let’s take a look at the commission agent’s daily activities.
On a day-to-day basis, the commission agent oversees the arrival and unloading of trucks filled with commodities. When he sells these commodities, he has to create bills for the suppliers. Similarly, he has to maintain records in his ledgers and make bills for all his customers too. Since payments are not made immediately, he has to keep track of the money he has to give or receive from his customers and suppliers. On top of everything, he has to track his inventory too. And this is just for one company. Imagine the work that’s involved in doing this for multiple companies. Plus we have not even considered the costs involved in running a business and managing the staff.
Now let’s come to daily bookkeeping. This is a full-time job for most commission agents and it’s prone to human error. Plus, traditional bookkeeping methods aren’t an ideal solution. Maintaining books in physical form is risky as it can be easily misplaced, or damaged by water, fire or even termites. Next comes mandi software which is downloaded onto computer systems. Unfortunately, computers can be stolen or destroyed, or simply suffer system crashes. This too can lead to loss of data.
All these activities leave very little time for the commission agent to take a break. Even from a professional point of view, he is too busy to focus on business expansion. And even if he does, new business ventures come with the same amount of work.
