DBT Agriculture: Bihar

In a world that is constantly changing, the effects of global warming are far-reaching. And the profession that takes the worse hit even with the slightest change in climate is those of farmers. They are the ones who have to live at the mercy of the weather, just to bring food on the table for their own families. Imagine having to live such a life where you fill the nation’s stomach, but commercialism has other plans for you. 

In the knowledge of such atrocity faced by farmers, the government of India initiated the DBT Agriculture portal. The DBT portal is exclusively for farmer benefits and its underlying motive of existence is farmer relief. 

How does this work?

Farmers are the primary earners, as they earn their source of income from whatever they grow. It would be astounding to know that our Economy is Agrarian in nature and a major chunk of our GDP is generated through agricultural produce being exported. 

In order to bring relief to farmers all across the nation, the DBT Agriculture department was set up. 

The objective of the DBT agriculture department

The primary objective of the DBT agriculture department is to send money to farmers who are going through a tough time. To implement this, the details of the farmers are collected and then the money is transferred to them through direct benefit transfer. 

What can farmers register for?

Applications can be made for any of the following schemes run by the state government for the benefit of farmers. 

  1. Krishi Input subsidy scheme
  2. Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana
  3. Agricultural input Subsidy scheme for the Drought-prone blocks
  4. Diesel Grant KMS
  5. Prime Minister of Agricultural Irrigation Scheme
  6.  Agricultural Mechanisation Scheme 
  7. Application for Seed Admitted State Government
  8. Seed Grant Scheme Application

These are some of the schemes that farmers in Bihar can use to their benefits. Those from other states would have other specific schemes in place, if not these. 

What are the documents required for Farmer Registration

  1. Aadhar Card that is linked with your functional mobile number. This is crucial as an OTP is sent to the registered mobile number during the time of registration
  2. Bank Account Details and Account Number IFSC code etc. What would be more effective and much less cumbersome is to straightaway carry your bank’s passbook as it has all the necessary information needed to process your registration. 

How to go about the registration process?  

  1. Click on the official link of DBT agriculture Bihar. Once the site loads, you will see a lot of options, that can confuse you. All you have to remember is to click on “More Options.” On doing that, a Registration tab will open right in front of you. 
  2.   Under registration, you will see some options too. The easiest is “Demographic+OTP”
  3. Here you would have to enter your Aadhar authentication and enter the OTP that is generated. 
  4. Once you have entered the OTP, you would have to click on Validate. 
  5. After you click on validate, you will see a new page loading, which would go by the name, Farmer registration. Fill in the information correctly and submit the form. A farmer registration number will appear when you submit it. The farmer has to keep this number safely as this is the Farmer registration number.

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.
