The Government has lately launched a lot of schemes for the welfare of its farmers. Increasing debts and debts in the farmer community was essentially a cause of concern and the government has been swift in devising an escape route for farmers in despair.
One such scheme happens to be the Haryana Pashu Kisan Credit Card Scheme, launched by the government of Haryana.
What does the Haryana Pashu Kisan Credit Card Scheme offer?
The Haryana Pashu Kisan Credit Card offers the card-holder the ability to get loans up to ₹1 lakh 80 thousand without having to offer any guarantee.
Benefits under the scheme:
Farmers will get a credit of ₹76,300 per Murrah Buffalo
For one exotic cow in their possession, ₹71,325 will be given to the beneficiary
Farmers will be given one indigenous cow for ₹70,825
Farmers will not be charged with any interest on loans up to ₹1.6 lakhs
Farmers will be given loans under Pashu Kisan Credit Card scheme at an interest rate of 7%.
How to apply for this scheme?
Pashu Kisan Credit cards in Haryana have tied up with 24 dairy plants in the state. These plants have milk collection points where the Pashu Kisan Credit card application forms would be available.
The details of the animals will be picked up along with 1 photograph from the Har Pashu Ka Gyan app.
When the farmer submits the complete details, the department will follow up with banks and the credit card will be issued to farmers the next day at the milk collection point itself.
Farmers have faced a tough time making ends meet and with such schemes in place, farmers around the nation can finally breathe easier.
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.
