Irrigation equipment will be repaired free of cost! Farmers will benefit from this!
Currently, the farming season is in full swing. Due to economic conditions of the farmers, it is difficult for them to repair the irrigation system. As a result, the repair of the irrigation system under the Prime Minister's Micro Irrigation Scheme will be a relief to the farmers.
The Central Government has issued some guidelines for the implementation of the Drip Irrigation Scheme. Under this, it is necessary to open a center in each district to provide after-sales service to farmers, where micro-irrigation set manufacturers and suppliers of the respective company are selling.
It is necessary to provide free servicing service for three years for the set provided to the concerned farmer. Under the Micro Irrigation Scheme, it is necessary to change the part by charging the price of replacement material as per the instructions of the Central Government. Under the Micro Irrigation Scheme, the company is obliged to provide this service as per the instructions of the Central Government. During this fortnight, farmers need to be trained to provide technical information including drip irrigation service as well as micro irrigation. Skill training program is being implemented for skill based agricultural workers.
