Assam Tractor Distribution Under CMSGUY
All 26,000 villages across the state will be covered in a phased manner through this Assam Tractor Distribution Scheme. For Tractor Subsidy Scheme a group of 8-10 people who are real adult farmers can apply under this scheme. Through this scheme, farmers will be strengthened and will also be made self-sufficient.
If farmers use these tractors properly, they can also become financially strong. The farmer can also use these tractors in agricultural activities, which can also promote the development of Assam. A provision of allocation of Rs 1000 crore has been made by the Assam State Government for the successful implementation of this scheme.
Monitoring of Assam Tractor Distribution
These tractors will be provided by the state government using public money; hence farmers need to ensure proper use. Local people will then monitor the effective use of these tractors. In addition, a separate unit will be set up under the Department of Agriculture to provide information to the beneficiaries and monitor their activities.
A report by the Assam State Government to the Department of Agriculture every 3 months on the progress of work to the beneficiaries is required. Through this scheme, tractors will be provided to 1 agricultural unit in each revenue village and this is the biggest scheme across the country.
