Haryana includes more crops in Bhavantar Bharpayee Yojna Scheme

Haryana includes more crops in Bhavantar Bharpayee Yojna Scheme

Recently, the Haryana government has decided to bring more crops under the 'Bhavantar Bharpayee Yojna (BBY)' scheme and this decision was taken at a BBY review meeting. BBY review meeting was presided by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.

About Bhavantar Bharpayee Yojna Scheme

  • Bhavantar Bharpayee Yojna Scheme was started in Haryana from 1 January 2018.
  • The scheme was developed for safeguarding the investment of the farmers. 
  • Under this unique scheme if someone gets lower price than the protected price, it will be compensated by the state government.
  • The state agricultural department will fix the least selling price of certain crops and if the farmer gets the price lower than the price fixed by the government, the difference will be paid as an incentive to the farmers directly into their bank accounts.
  • The farmers have to register themselves on ‘Meri Fasal Mera Byora (MFMB)’ portal for getting the scheme benefits.
  • The scheme has been running very successfully in the past two years. Now, along with potato, onion, tomato, and cabbage; carrots, peas, kinnow, guava, capsicum, and brinjal will also be included under the scheme BBY.

The crops covered under the scheme in the first phase for protected prices and fixed production:

  • Four crops: Tomato, Onion, Potato, and Cauliflower.
  • Preserved value and fixed production of identified crops.

Main objectives of the scheme:

  • The scheme reduces the risk of farmers by preservation price during low prices of vegetables and fruits in the market.
  • The scheme will encourage farmers to diversify into agriculture.
