What did #famers get in #Budget, where @nsitharaman claimed, "Our Govt is committed to the goal of doubling farmers income by 2022"

P.S-Acc to Dalwai committee,"real income of farmer, should increase by 10.4%/year,which has been increasing less than 2.5% in last 5 years
@nsitharaman @_YogendraYadav @aviksahaindia @sayantanbera @seemay @Ghair_Kanooni @Subytweets @sritara @srinivasanravi @DrSarvapriya @RURALINDIA Govt allocates 9.3% of the budget to #Agri, allied,irrigation & #rural development, which was 9.8% last year. Factoring Inflation, Real Increase in allocation is actually negative.

Is this enough ?
Will this increase #farm income, prop up #rural demand ?

@nsitharaman @_YogendraYadav @aviksahaindia @sayantanbera @seemay @Ghair_Kanooni @Subytweets @sritara @srinivasanravi @DrSarvapriya @RURALINDIA @mkvenu1 @PreetiSMenon Govt allocated 1.58 lakh crore to #agri, allied sectors & irrigation i.e. 5.2% of the total budget. Last years budget had allocated 1.52 lakh crore, which was 5.45% of the budget i.e. reduced spending !

👉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

Who will address this ? What about the fundamentals ?
@nsitharaman @_YogendraYadav @aviksahaindia @sayantanbera @seemay @Ghair_Kanooni @Subytweets @sritara @srinivasanravi @DrSarvapriya @RURALINDIA @mkvenu1 @PreetiSMenon @rssurjewala @MonaAmbegaonkar @kapsology @jamewils @Rssamul @nistula @ikaveri Many expected that Govt will get the point, that money in the hands of people will spur "demand". But, #PMKISAN allocations were kept the same i.e. Rs 75000 crore, while 54,370 crore was spent last year, & #MGNREGS allocation increased by a paltry 1500 Cr. Sigh !

In the 1-year period, only 3.85 crore #farmers received all d 3 instalments of Rs 2000 each that they were entitled to

So, effectively, #Budget has allocated less than what it expects to spend this year.

Will this propel demand?

Cooperative societies will be treated equal to corporates by reducing Income Tax from 30% to 22%.

👉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

But, the need of the hour was to put money in the hands of the farmers, which has been overlooked

Govt aims to double #milk processing capacity from 53.5 million MT to 108 million MT by 2025.

These are welcome steps, if implemented on ground, but they talk about future, while the need was to augment farm #incomes now !
@nsitharaman @_YogendraYadav @aviksahaindia @sayantanbera @seemay @Ghair_Kanooni @Subytweets @sritara @srinivasanravi @DrSarvapriya @RURALINDIA @mkvenu1 @PreetiSMenon @rssurjewala @MonaAmbegaonkar @kapsology @jamewils @Rssamul @nistula @ikaveri @sushmitadevinc But, if Budget allocations will not be spent, then the #Budget means nothing but a Jumla, Eg-Govt allocated 2000 crore in 2018-19 Budget to upgrade 22000 #rural haats #agri #mandis. Its been 2 years & a paltry 10.4 crore was spent on these mandis.
