Krishi Gurukul Yojana in Maharashtra

Maharashtra has been on the frontlines for farmers committing suicides. For any state, it is the saddest thing to know that its farmers live unhappily. And while a lot of their unhappiness stems from various reasons like irregular rainfalls and corrupt middlemen, the biggest reason for farmers being unhappy is poor yields. 

Now one cannot immediately alter natural forces in favour of farmers, however, one can educate the farmers about dealing with such conditions. For that reason, the government of Maharashtra has started the Krishi Gurukul Yojana, which is a pro-farmer yojana in the state. This scheme was announced during the 2016-17 budget. 

Benefits under the Krishi Gurukul Yojana

Here is a list of benefits farmers can reap from the Yojana that is meant for them:

  1. Technology integration: Enabling farmers to use technology will improve their yield manifold. 
  2. Smart work: It gets difficult for farmers to slog in the fields, especially with the lack of nutrition they function with. Teaching them strategies that help them work smart will save their efforts in the long run. 
  3. Better results: Smart integration of technology and strategies will not only improve the yield but yield quality yield which would have a higher market value too. 

Eligibility for Krishi Gurukul Yojana:

This scheme is valid only for farmers all across the state. The scheme, as of now, only covers residents of Maharashtra state alone. 

Who can you contact for the scheme?

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.
