District administration rushing to reach PM-KISAN scheme to farmers
Nashik: After announcing schemes and concessions for farmers in interim Union Budget, the central government announced to give Rs. 6000 per year for the family of those farmers who have farmland below 5 acres under Prime Minister-KISAN scheme.
The government has ordered to implement the scheme before enforcement of the Model Code of Conduct for Lok Sabha elections. As a result, talthis and circle officers are rushing to reach the scheme.
Announcing the implementation programme of the Prime Minister-KISSAN scheme recently, the district administration has handed over its responsibility on tehsildar. Circle officers and talathis have provided momentum to it.
The awareness at the level of all Desdhoot in the district, as well as registration of beneficiaries, have been started for this. The implementation of the scheme has to be completed between February 7 to 27.
Farmers have been asked to deposit all documents till February 15. They are rushing to get the benefit of the scheme. As the number of families having the farmland below 5 acres is large in the villages along Nashik city, Nashik tehsildar office has a huge responsibility.
Meanwhile, talthi Anil Rokade took an initiative and erected a pandal at Adgaon, taluka and district Nashik by spending his own money and has started to make registration of beneficiary farmers.
As appeal has been made through hoarding and social media, farmers in large numbers are gathering here to make their registrations. Circle officer Shinde and talathi Rokade are registering the beneficiaries.
