Telangana Government To Allocate Rs. 12,000

cr For Crop Investment Support

Rs 12,000 crore for crop investment, prepaid

cards for Telangana farmers

Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Sunday announced that, for

the first time, Rs 12,000 crore would be allocated exclusive for the agriculture

budget, to be presented in the Assembly in Telangana, for implementation of its

much-talked about Farmers Investment Support Scheme (FISS),

This 12,000 crore would be distributed among 1.42 crore farmers doing

agriculture in about 1.65 crore acres in Telangana. In the first phase, cheques

for Rs 4,000 would be distributed to each farmer from mid-May. The

government will give pre-paid cards (pre-loaded bank cards) to the farmers in

second phase to commence in November.

farmers can just swipe and avail their money

“Farmers can just swipe and avail their money through pre-paid cards,” the

chief minister said while addressing the regional conference of the newly

constituted mandal and district level farmers’ coordination committees from 13

districts of southern Telangana.

The FISS would be extended even to horticulture and assigned lands. There are

about 20 lakh acres of assigned land that is free from all sorts of litigation and

another two lakh acre of assigned land involved in litigations.

CM KCR said agriculture is a way of life and that it should not be considered a

commercial activity. He attributed the many years of distress and despair, and

large numbers of suicides triggered by poor financial conditions, to decades of

neglect and discrimination by successive governments in the undivided state.

He said the fortunes of the farmers would be revived by the farmers

themselves.

“Every seed produced by a farmer will get MSP(minimum support price). The

farmers will sell their agriculture produce at MSP to the traders at the market

yards. If they don’t get MSP, the agriculture coordination committees headed by

MP Gutta Sukhender Reddy as its president at the State level will buy it at MSP.

Farmers will not lose but gain,” CM KCR said.

The investment assistance would be disbursed through bearer cheques for

kharif and for yasangi crops, and the farmers would be given pre-loaded bank

cards.

“Neither CM KCR nor the agriculture minister Pocharam Srinivas Reddy can do

much. The farmers coordination committees should shoulder greater

responsibilities. The members of the committee will be given training at

the Telangana State Institute of Rural Development on their responsibilities and

the approach in resolving problems of farmers,” he said.CM KCR announced that

he would be giving his share of the investment to support the farmers, and

appealed to all the rich farmers to “give it up” too. There are a large number of

farmers who are well-off and from wealthier sections of society in Telangana

and the money from this “give it up” would be again used for development of

farmers and agriculture.CM KCR appealed to all the members of farmer

coordination committees and the farmers to take a vow to transform entire

agriculture activity in Telangana on the lines of Ankapur village in Nizamabad

district, where the local farmers enjoy good profits and higher revenue outputs,

by adopting latest technologies and doing planned agriculture activity. Owing to

the new innovations and improved profits, Ankapur has earned the nickname

“mini-US” among the farmers.
