Rajiv Gandhi Kisan Nyay Yojana Chhattisgarh

Rajiv Gandhi Kisan Nyay Yojana in Chhattisgarh:

  • Chhattisgarh government is all set to implement the NYAY scheme in the state which was announced by the former Congress President Rahul Gandhi earlier this year. 
  • Rajiv Gandhi Kisan Nyay Yojana being launched by the Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel from May 21 (Death anniversary of former Prime minister Rajiv Gandhi) can be seen as a vital step towards it. 
  • The scheme intends to provide stimulus to the rural economy of the state which is going through a slum due to the lockdown.
  • The Nyay scheme that Congress had promised to implement in its manifesto was aimed at ensuring minimum income availability of the poor through direct bank transfer. Soon after the formation of the Baghel led government in Chhattisgarh, work was started regarding the economic strengthening of farmers, tribals and laborers.
  • Under the state government's Rajiv Gandhi's Kisan Nyay Yojana, starting from May 21 the exchange of funds for paddy, maize and sugarcane (rabi) crops will be transferred to the farmers' account on the basis of the area registered and acquired in Kharif year 2019. This will directly help 20 lakh farmers. For this, a provision of Rs 5100 crore has been made in the budget. Earlier, the state government had waived loan amounting to Rs. 8800 crore for about 18 lakh farmers.
