Under the leadership of our popular and visionary Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, the results of all-round efforts made by the Union Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare in the last eight years are being reflected in the society. Many innovative steps have been taken by the ministry in the form of initiatives, schemes and programs that are playing a major role in improving the conditions of farmers.
The standard of living of farmers is getting better and agricultural assistance from Delhi is reaching them directly through bank accounts with complete transparency. The income of farmers has increased, their thinking towards accepting agriculture as a business has got a new direction.
All schemes, programs and activities of the government ensure that farmers take an interest in becoming agricultural entrepreneurs voluntarily.
The budget allocation of the last eight years, the substantial increase in it and more farmer friendly agri-policies are a part of the government’s positive thinking and strong will power.
The allocation of agricultural budget in the current financial year is around Rs 1.32 lakh crore, a reflection of the honest thinking of the central government for the welfare of farmers. The budget allocation for agriculture has increased by almost six times in the last eight years.
