Upto 100 percent subsidy on these agricultural implements, apply now!
It is very important to have agricultural machinery for modern agriculture. But some farmers are unable to buy expensive agricultural equipment due to poor economic conditions. In view of these, the Central Government has established 42 thousand custom hiring centres for the purpose of providing modern agricultural equipment on rent to small and marginal farmers of the country.
It will not take a single rupee to open a custom hiring center
Significantly, the Modi government has now taken a big step to solve the problem of farmers. In fact, in some backward states, the government has decided to give a subsidy of up to 100 per cent for taking machines related to farming. That is, the farmer will not have to invest a single rupee from his pocket to open a custom hiring center.
Mechanization encouraged in farming
In order to promote mechanization in farming, the Union Agriculture Ministry has launched a scheme called Agricultural Mechanization Submission. Under this, the machines used for ploughing, sowing, plantation, harvesting and waste management will now be easily procured.Under the farm mechanization submissions, modern agricultural machinery like land leveller, zero till seed drill, seeder, mulcher, etc. will be provided so that farming is easy, production increases and income doubles.
100 subsidy for agricultural implements.
In fact, a special facility has been provided by the Central Government for the farmers of the North Eastern Region. In which it has been decided to provide 100 percent financial assistance to build a custom hiring center. However, the scheme which has 100 percent subsidy will get a maximum of Rs 1.25 lakh. So on the other hand, if the farmers groups in the North-East region spend up to Rs 10 lakh to build a machine bank, then they will get 95 percent subsidy. It is to be noted that in other areas, 40 percent assistance will be provided to the general category farmers. While SC, ST, women and small-marginal farmers will get subsidy at the rate of 50 percent.
