Yogi Adityanath’s government of Uttar Pradesh is coming up with various schemes for the farmers. These schemes will benefit the farmers, but they will also benefit the agriculture sector. Under a similar scheme, farmers will now be able to make medium and small ponds in their fields. Farmers will be able to do fish farming in these ponds and get a 50 per cent subsidy from the government.
At the same time, farmers will no longer be troubled by the challenging weather conditions to irrigate the fields due to water conservation. To take advantage of the scheme, farmers will have to initially deposit only one thousand rupees. Farmers will benefit from the scheme on a first-come, first-served basis. They have to apply for it. Farmers can get the help of the scheme by visiting the website of the Agriculture Department.
Farmers will make medium and small ponds in the field, and the area of these ponds will be 0.044 hectares. The length of this pond will be 22 meters, the width will be 20 meters, and the depth will be 3 meters. Farmers will prepare the pond by these standards. The Inspector District Land Conservation Officer will also inspect the pond.
Geo-tagging of the pond will be done in the test so that the pond cannot be misused. Under the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana, farmers will have to apply on the transparent service portal.
52,500 will be given subsidy
Bareilly’s District Land Conservation Officer Vinod Kumar Yadav said that farmers could make medium and small ponds in the field. They can also do fish farming in these ponds. In the Bareilly district, many farmers are doing fish farming by making ponds in the area and earning good profit.
While applying, farmers will have to upload a photo of Khasra, Khatauni, field. Farmers have to use it within 15 days from the start of the process. The subsidy of the pond will come into the account of the farmers in three instalments. Rs 52,500 will be given to the farmers by combining the three instalments. The cost of preparing the pond will be one lakh five thousand rupees, i.e. the government will provide a 50 per cent subsidy to the farmers.
The government has brought a new scheme for farmers.
Land Conservation Officer Vinod Kumar Yadav said that this is a perfect scheme for the farmers. A new scheme has come for the farmers at the government level. Farmers will not only be able to conserve water by making a pond in the field, but they will also be able to rinse by using that water in times of trouble.
