‘Kisan Sampark Abhiyan’ an awareness programme to establish direct contact with farmers held in Tral

‘Kisan Sampark Abhiyan’ (Farmers Orientation Programme) is being carried out in all the Panchayats in Jammu & Kashmir from April 24- August 31, 2023, to establish a direct contact with the farmers. They are being trained in holistic development in agriculture and allied sectors and being made aware of the 70 policies of the government and the 18 Centrally sponsored schemes, the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu & Kashmir Shri Manoj Sinha said. The Lieutenant Governor requested that if we all can bring meaningful change in the most deprived sections of the society then we are going to do something bigger and more sacred than worshipping in any temple or worshipping in a mosque, LG stated. In Tral district of Jammu & Kashmir, one such Kisan Mela was organised where the agriculture and horticulture departments came up with schemes which were beneficial to us, said farmers in Tral. The schemes will benefit 6.6 lakh farmers and generate employment for 15, 700 people. This direct interaction programme with farmers is making farmers more aware of the schemes and the benefits therein. Farmers are getting aware of Animal Husbandry Infrastructure Development Fund and Integrated Poultry Development Programme for establishing a Commercial Broiler Farm where the incentive is Rs 100 per day old chick, among others. The farmers in the Tral region showed good response towards these schemes. The scheme managers said they are making online registrations so that we can make self help groups and the schemes reach the maximum number of people and they benefit from it.
