The Government of India is aiming to increase the income of farmers by five times. The government has also introduced some useful schemes for farmers to become prominent in agriculture. Here's how a group of farmers can get financial assistance of Rs 1 lakh:
Farmers Union will get all the benefits that the company gets:
The assistance being provided here is for the Farmers Producer Organization. The government has approved to form 6.5 Farmers Producer Association, for which the government is ready to spend Rs. 5 crores in the next five years. The Farmer Manufacturers Association will register as a company and enjoy all the benefits of the company. Yes, this organization will be separate from the cooperative unit. Because, it will come under the 'Companies Act' and not the Cooperative Act.
What is FPO ?
It is important for every farmer to know what the Farmers Producer Association (FPO) is. The simplest explanation for this is: FPO means a group of farmers who are professionally involved in agricultural products. Farmers can form this union. It is recognized as a company. Many government units are working towards making this organization more effective. Presently two government bodies handle this work: (1) Small Farmers Agricultural Trade Association (2) National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development.
What is the benefit:
Small farmers will benefit more from FPOs. At the time of Atal Bihari Vajpayee when these organizations were nominated to operate, their main objective was to get rid of the practices of the farmers and find a viable market for the products.
When farmers go to the market to sell finished goods, Guldar loses some of his share. But if the farmer is associated with the FPO, then the main price will be paid directly to the farmers due to lack of vecthery practice. In addition, if you want to buy seeds, fertilizers or agricultural equipment, these will also be available at a reasonable price. The central government is sitting on the task of forming 5, 5 such producing associations.
Money will be paid after following these conditions:
After the formation of a farmer-producer organization, financial support is required to fulfill the criteria given here: (1) If FPO is in the field, at least 5 members should join the organization - before this number Was 7. This means, there are at least 3 general members under the board members. If there are mountainous areas, the number is 0 instead of 1. (2) It will also be seen how the company provides crops to the farmers. (3) The administration of the company will take into account the nature of work at the grassroots level. (4) looking NABARD Consultancy Services' gives a rating in view of the work of the organization; If the rating is good, there will be a grant.
