Gujarat Kisan Suryoday Yojana 2020-2021 Apply Online / Village List

Farmers have always faced a tough time financially, as their mode of income is based on several uncertain variables. The Prime Minister of India has, taking the plight of farmers in Gujarat into consideration, launched the Gujarat Kisan Suryoday Yojana which will earmark a specific amount and dedicate it towards the welfare of poor farmers in the state.

About the Kisan Suryoday Yojana

Under the scheme, the government will spend ₹3500 crores over the span of three years in order to provide solar power to farmers for irrigation purposes during the daytime.

With the use of solar energy, farmers will now cut down on electricity bills incurred, thereby minimizing their expenses and maximizing their outputs. This scheme aims to provide free electricity to farmers for 16 hours a day – from 5 am to 9 pm. This would help farmers help expand their micro-irrigation range in the state and lead to better outcomes in the long run.

Not only will this scheme be an eco-friendly one as it provides solar energy to farmers, but it would also help in water conservation. Up until now, farmers would be getting electricity in the night, so they would switch on their motor pumps and leave them on all night. However, with this daytime electricity, huge amounts of water can now be saved.

Implementation of the scheme

The State government of Gujarat will allocate a budget of ₹3500 crores for installing the infrastructure needed to transmit energy. Under this scheme, roughly about 3500 circuit kilometers of new transmission lines will be set up all across the state in the span of the next three years. This will be implemented across villages and rural areas, wherever agrarian practices are undertaken.

The implementation of this scheme will affect the lives of lakhs of farmers across the state, especially areas that are tribal-dominated.

The PM launched this scheme and has lauded the efforts of the state government for coming up with an innovative model that supports the determination and the dedication of the common man. The farmers have been the pride of our nation and now, with this scheme, there will be a day when the farmers who feed the nation will never go hungry. With a fixed income, they will have avenues to meet their needs as well.

Impact on the condition of the farmers

Gujarat government has listed the scheme and promised that it will double the income of farmers by enabling the formation of thousands of FPOs, the neem coating urea, offering soil health cards, and launching several sister schemes alongside the Suryodaya yojana.

In conclusion

It has been observed that such schemes go a long way and have a long-lasting impact on the economy of the country. These schemes work towards the increase of yield which largely contributes to the nation’s Gross Domestic Product. With the Suryodaya scheme in place, farmers will now find the reassurance that the government has their back and that they have all the support they need to make things work.

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.
