In order to prevent farmers suicide in the state, Maharashtra Government is planning to implement zero farmers suicide welfare program called ‘convergence of agriculture intervention in agriculture’ in the state.
Agriculture Minister Eknath Khadse in his tweet Tuesday said that under the scheme a survey would be undertaken in all suicide prone farming regions like Vidarbha, Marathawada and North Maharashtra.
The survey aims to know the personal financial and agricultural problems faced by the farmers and their families living in the regions where farmers’ suicide cases are frequently reported.
The survey would also study the credit granting systems provided to farmers in these regions and also propose other possible easy and safe options of financial credits to farmers staying in the suicide prone regions.
Khadse stated that the survey would also facilitate the government to start other welfare schemes for the farmers in the state.
