After the huge success of Kalia Yojana, the Government of Odisha is going to launch Balaram Yojana 2020. Now every landless farmer can get the benefit of the convenient agricultural loans. In this post, we have mentioned all the important information like the benefits of the scheme, eligibility criteria, application procedures, etc. So, continue reading the post.
As per my knowledge, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, more than 2 lakh people are jobless in Odisha. For the welfare and development of these landless daily laborers, the state Government will provide an affordable loan under Balaram Yojana-2020. On 2nd July 2020, the state Chief Secretary AK Tripathi chaired a high-level meeting regarding the landless farmers. After that, he announced that the Odisha Government will fund a relief package of Rs.1040/- crore for the farmer’s welfare.
Balaram Yojana Plan
Under Balram Yojana, the State Government will provide loans to 7 lakh unique farmers. All the loans will be distributed through Joint Liability Groups (JLG). As per the statement of Horticulture Secretary Mr. Saurabh Garg, all the landless farmers will get the loan through JLG. Finally, the Agricultural Technology Management Agency (ATMA) will make all the arrangements for this scheme at the ground level. The Institute on Management of Agricultural Extension (IMAGE) will manage the fund.
The Balaram Yojana will provide the loan to the landless and jobless farmers. Hence, these people will utilize this money for the formation of new business. As a result, they will create some jobs in the market. So, there will be growth for Odisha and India.
