Ministry: Government of Telangana

Salient Features: Rythu Bandhu is a support scheme for farmers in Telangana, which provides cheque payments to farmers based on their landholdings.

It is first of its kind investment support scheme for farmers to be launched by any state in India.

Under this scheme, farmers will directly get financial support twice every year to maximise agricultural production and productivity.

They will get investment support of Rs 8,000 per acre every year (Rs. 4000 each for monsoon and Rabi season) as crop investment support.

The government will issue cheques rather than make direct benefit transfer (DBT) because banks might use the DBT money to adjust against farmers’ previous dues.
