Jharkhand Government’s Subsidy Program for Sorghum and Pearl Millet Cultivation


Jharkhand Government’s Subsidy Program

The state government has announced an incentive amount for farmers engaged in the cultivation of sorghum and pearl millet. Farmers will receive a subsidy of INR 11,250 per acre for sorghum cultivation, with the government transferring the specified amount to their accounts through Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT). Farmers interested in availing this benefit must first register for it.

Under the Millets Mission initiated by the state government, a plan has been devised to provide financial support to farmers for cultivation. The government will allocate a certain amount per acre to farmers, offering the highest subsidy of INR 11,250 per acre for sorghum cultivation. Additionally, a subsidy of INR 10,500 per acre will be provided for pearl millet cultivation and INR 8,800 per acre for finger millet cultivation. A total sum of INR 50 crores has been earmarked by the state government for this initiative.

The disbursement of funds will be carried out through the DBT system, requiring farmers to undergo a registration process before the government conducts a survey of their cultivation. Subsequently, the allocated subsidy will be transferred to their accounts.

Farmers will initially bear their expenses for cultivation and later provide details to the department. Information about farmers’ registration will be maintained through blockchain technology, facilitating the distribution of incentives to different farmers each year.

Emphasizing alternative cultivation methods after drought conditions persist for two consecutive years in the state, the government is encouraging farmers to shift towards alternative crops rather than traditional farming. The economic prosperity of farmers is the primary goal, considering the decrease in rice production due to drought.

The government’s intention is to redirect farmers towards alternative cultivation methods in light of the prevailing drought conditions, which have also led to a reduced rice yield in the state. The Millets Mission has been designed to provide financial incentives to farmers embracing alternative cultivation methods and deviating from conventional practices.
