There is no greater calamity for a farmer than the destruction of his hard-fed crop and it is well known that every sector has been badly affected by the ill effects of the global pandemic Kovid-19. The agriculture sector has also not remained untouched by this. Its ill-effects made such a dent during the lock down on the standing crops and vegetables prepared on the fields and gardens that neither the farmers got laborers and means of transport, nor did they get the buyer nor the market, as a result, the cultivation of vegetables in the gardens itself. The finished crop reached the verge of destruction and eventually the farmer had to pay the price.
Amarnath, a farmer of Masora in development block Kondagaon, has also been a similar farmer. Whose chilli crop was almost destroyed during the difficult period of epidemic because the crop was ready, but due to the above reasons, the crop of Amarnath chillies dried up in the field itself. The destruction of the crop was no less than a blow to the said farmer.
Rajiv Gandhi Nyaya Yojana came as a boon:-In such a critical situation, the Rajiv Gandhi Nyay Yojana, run by the state government, played an important role in helping the farmer Amarnath overcome such economic crisis and he received an amount of Rs 13 thousand 4 hundred 88 under the Nyaya scheme. This amount made up for their losses to a great extent and they were able to raise the seeds of fertilizers for the Kharif crop of paddy. It is worth noting that the Rajiv Gandhi Kisan Nyay Yojana was launched by the Chhattisgarh government on 21 May 2020 with the aim of promoting crop productivity in the state. Under this scheme, about 19 lakh farmers registered in Kharif season 2019-20 were given input assistance amounting to Rs 5628 crore as agricultural input assistance. In four installments, the amount was transferred by the government to the bank account of the farmers. Along with this, it was also decided under the scheme that this year also the farmers who had sold paddy at the support price, if instead of paddy, Kodo, Kutki, Sugarcane, Arhar, Maize, Soyabean, Pulses, Oilseeds, Fragrant Paddy or If others produce fortified paddy crop or plant trees, then instead of 9 thousand rupees per acre, they will be given an input subsidy of 10 thousand rupees, and those who plant trees will get this grant for 3 years.
In this way, Rajiv Gandhi Nyay Yojana is proving to be a boon for thousands of farmers like Krishak Amarnath and has made the concept of sustainable development in agriculture meaningful as per the intention of the Chief Minister of the state. The farmers who had considered farming as a means of bankruptcy, but due to the successful implementation of the Nyaya scheme, there has been a renewed enthusiasm and confidence in agriculture and Rajiv Gandhi Nyaya Yojana has done true justice to the farmers of the state as per its name. is.
