Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today said that the Rythu Bandhu scheme of his government heralded the start of a golden era in the country.
Launching the scheme from Huzurabad in Karimnagar district by distributing cheques for Rs 4,000 per acre to farmers as non-repayable crop investment along with Pattadar Pass Books, KCR said that the scheme would stand out in the annals of the country for its reach and impact.
KCR said that his government had accorded top priority for the scheme and had sanctioned Rs 12,000 crores for it. The farmers would get Rs 4,000 per acre twice in the year, for the two crop seasons (Kharif and Rabi).
The CM appreciated the hard work of the officials involved in the scheme, and asked the bankers to ensure that the farmers got cash for their cheques as the government had already deposited Rs 6,000 crores in cash with the banking system.
Stating that land, power and investment were essential for the farmers' welfare, KCR said that his government was giving top priority to those.
"We have cleansed 80 years of mess from the land records in the state, are providing uninterrupted power, and are now giving crop investment on a non-repayable basis. Through these, Telangana is showing direction to the nation," he claimed.
