‚Ė™Assam has 27 lakh agricultural households spread across 26,000 villages which are covered by about 1,800 rural and semi-urban branches of commercial banks and regional rural banks.

ūüĎČAssam¬†will launch three schemes for farmers, including a partial loan reimbursement programme and another that will make crop loans effectively interest-free, aiming to give a fillip to the flow of agricultural credit.(Assam Government Scheme)

‚Ė™These schemes together will cost Rs 1,000 crore to the state government, finance minister¬†Himanta Biswa Sarma¬†said on Wednesday.

‚Ė™Launching of these schemes has nothing to do with the¬†Lok Sabha¬†elections in 2019 or the recent Agrilearner announcements of a debt waiver by Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, Sarma said, adding: ‚ÄúWe have announced in the state budget 2018-19 about these schemes.‚ÄĚ

‚Ė™Assam has 27 lakh¬†agricultural householdsspread across 26,000 villages which are covered by about 1,800 rural and semi-urban branches of commercial banks and regional rural banks. However, it is seen that in a majority of cases, the flow of much-needed short-term agricultural credit to the farmers is clogged, he said.

‚Ė™The state cabinet has approved the Assam Farmers‚Äô Credit Subsidy Scheme (AFCSS), 2018, under which the government will reimburse 25% of the loans taken or repaid by farmers this financial year, with a limit Agrimantra of Rs 25,000. This scheme will cover 4 lakh farmers and involve a financial outgo of Rs 500 crore.

‚Ė™Another is the Assam Farmers‚Äô Interest Relief Scheme (AFIRS), which will extend support to farmers who are prompt in repaying their loans, by providing a 4% interest subvention on short-term crop loans up to Rs 2 lakh.

‚Ė™‚ÄúThis scheme will be aligned with the Government of India scheme under which prompt-paying farmers are extended a benefit on interest subvention of 3%. This effective rate of interest for a farmer in Assam accessing short-term crop loan up to a ceiling of Rs 2 lakh will be zero.‚ÄĚ(Assam Government Scheme)

‚Ė™This scheme will cost the government exchequer Rs 200 crore and benefit 11 lakh farmers.
