Is this enough ?
Will this increase #farm income, prop up #rural demand ?
👉Will this double #farm income by 2022 ?🙄
#FCI already owes 2 lakh crore to #NSSF, how will it function ? Seems, #Modi Govt wants to shut FCI, stop #MSP procurement & the #PDS ! #Farmers
allocation was 3000 crore in #Budget2019. This has been scaled down to 2000 crore in #Budget2020
👉Stifling money for the scheme, which directly helps the #farmers realize Min Support Prices does not make sense.🤨
#PM-AASHA scheme, which was served as a tool to ensure MSP's to #farmers, allocation also cut from 1,500 crore to 500 crore in #Budget2020
Pradhan Mantri Kisan Man Dhan Yojna=700 Cr
Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana=1467.20 Cr
Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojna=985 Cr
National Mission on Horticulture=642 Cr
Market Intervention Scheme+Price Support Scheme=990 Cr
Pulse distribution scheme=430 Crore
Pradhan Mantri Fasal Beema Yojna=359.15 Cr
Interest subsidy to #farmers=137 Cr
National Food Security Mission=223.1 Cr
National Project on Soil Health & Fertility=168.3 Cr Rainfed Area Development & Climate Change=104 Cr
Will this propel demand?
👉This move will help Co-op's increase profits, & will benefit farmers, only if these profits are shared with #farmers.
Govt plans to involve Youth in 3477 SagarMitras and 500 Fish Farmer Producer Organisations, plants to encourage fish processing+marketing. By 2022-23, plan to raise fish production to 200 lakh tonnes. Growing of algae, sea-weed and cage Culture will also be promoted
These are welcome steps, if implemented on ground, but they talk about future, while the need was to augment farm #incomes now !
Need to walk the talk @PMOIndia
