Three Golden Years of Farmers in Rajasthan Government

The Rajasthan government, which is fighting for farmers’ interests from Parliament to the road, decides the schemes’ policies by keeping their needs and facilities as the central objective, an allegory of which can be seen in the governance of the state government. Completing his three-year tenure, the Chief Minister has put farmers in the topmost position along with every section. In these three years, he has taken many such decisions related to their interests, the benefits of which are being availed by the state’s farmers with complete satisfaction.

When the State government evolved in power, they promised in its first manifesto to waive off the farmer’s loan, which they kept. However, apart from this, they worked towards several relief initiatives for the farmers. The Rajasthan government has implemented the scheme of a five percent interest subsidy for the tenants seeking long-term agricultural loans. They set a target of distributing crop loans to more than 25 lakh farmers and providing crop loans to the farmers sitting at home during the threat of the Coronavirus phase.

Above and beyond, for the welfare of farmers of the state, the State Government set up a Farmers Welfare Fund. Also, the state government came up with the Kusum Component-A scheme in which solar power plants on barren and unusable lands will be set up, through which the government will make efforts to increase the farmers’ income.

The government launched Raj Kisan Saathi Portal to promote Ease of Doing Farming and made the entire process of agriculture-related departments online from application to payment. The Rajasthan Government also helped pay their agricultural bills by giving 1 thousand /month and 12 thousand/annum through the Kisan Mitra Energy Scheme. It is inspiring that more than 8.84 lakh farmers have benefited from this scheme and used an additional grant of Rs 231 crore. Out of these, the electricity bills of more than 3 lakh 41 thousand inhabitants have come down to zero.

The State government is leaving no stone unturned to give a respectable life to the farmer who has contributed to strengthening the country’s economy. An example of this is that Chief Minister Shri Ashok Gehlot in his budget announcement 2021 announced to bring a separate budget for farmers, which will start from the year 2022. Rajasthan will be the first state in the country to get this agriculture budget. Chief Minister Shri Ashok Gehlot and his government vigorously raised the voice of the farmers in the farmers’ movement against the three agriculture bills. They are constantly trying to ensure that the farmers get all the rights and benefits of their share in total.
