Chhattisgarh Godhan Nyay Yojana 2020

The Chhattisgarh Godhan Nyay Yojana has been launched by The Govt of Chhattisgarh in the month of July 2020. This scheme was inaugurated on the festival day of ‘Hareli’ in Chhattisgarh by the Chief Minister Mr.Bhupesh Baghel. The scheme aims at the uplifting of the rural economy, facilitating organic farming, preventing the movement of stray animals, and procuring organic manure as well as improving the waste disposal in urban areas and helping in sanitation. Under this scheme, the Govt offers to buy cow dung at Rs 2 for each kilogram from people across the state. This will not only help the govt obtain high-quality manure for several developmental projects but also reduce unemployment and poverty.

Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel in one of his interviews states that this cow dung collected from people would be used to create vermicompost which is necessary for organic farming. The responsibility of selling the vermicompost will rest in the cooperative societies. The farmers would be able to avail of commodity loans to get the vermicompost from the cooperative societies as well. Moreover, apart from vermicompost, products like  NADEP compost, vermiwash, bio-gas, and bio-pesticides will also be churned out with the manure. This kind of farming has become highly profitable and will help the economy and will also act as a welfare project. Then again, at least more than 2000 cowsheds in villages and more than 350 cowsheds in the cities, across the state will provide the manure in the first phase of implementation of the scheme.


1.The scheme aims at making cattle rearing profitable. It also plans to prevent open grazing. In the urban areas, the collection of cow dung will encourage maintenance of sanitation and hygiene, by organized disposal of the manure. The idea of making cow dung a profitable commodity gives rise to the concept of sustainable development. Apart from boosting the economy with a regular inflow of money, the scheme is also developing systems for ecological welfare and rural economic sustainability.

2.The Govt plans to build large numbers of cowsheds to facilitate the implementation of this scheme. All the gram panchayats and the villages in the state will be benefitted under this scheme. These cowsheds have been named ‘gouthans’.These are the main centers for the procurement of manure. Nodal officers have been appointed to look into the management of the program. At a rural level, these Gouthans are managed by Self Help Groups and Gram Gouthan Committee. 3. The Govt offer is to buy cow dung of one kilogram at Rs 2 which includes the cost of transportation. Moreover, the specifications for the quality of cow dung have also been mentioned by the Govt in the scheme. Since the inception of the scheme, payments have been initiated on a regular basis to the cow dung sellers which has helped the unemployed people the most in the village as well as in urban areas. At least  Rs1.6 crore has been used to buy manure from people under this scheme by the Govt till July  2020. Moreover, the govt plans to invest Rs 500 crore into this scheme and make it self-sustainable.

Schemes launched by the state government

The state governments of India are the next important government bodies right after the central government of the country. The state governments constitute 28 states and 8 union territories

India is a democratic and republic country wherein highest authorities and powers are proffered to the central government. For the state government, real executive powers are given to Chief Minister as he is responsible for heading the Council of Ministers. The state governments of India work toward internal security, such as police department, social welfare, public health betterment and other similar state-related issues. The state government of the country earns its employee income from sales tax services, stamp duty services, and from some parts of GST.

The state governments have launched a variety of schemes so far. Some of the examples are as follows:

In Andhra Pradesh, Chandranna Bima Yojana, National Energy Efficient Agriculture Pumps Program, and Smart Pulse Survey have been launched. In Assam, Mass Rapid Transit System has been recently launched. In Maharashtra, Police Pratisaad Ask services and various schemes for the betterment of farmers have been launched. In Karnataka, PM Santwana Harish Yojana, and Housing scheme for Transgenders have been launched. In Uttar Pradesh, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojana, Hausla Paushan scheme, and Swadhar Greh yojana have been launched.

The state government of India monitors both rural and urban development. However, it is not feasible for the state government to monitor all rural and urban local government bodies. Thus, based on the provided funding and coverage, rural and urban local entities create development plan whenever required. These government entities work in close association with planning commission and local or regional government sectors and authorities.

Apart from these schemes, the state government also ensures the effective implementation of centrally sponsored schemes in respective states.
