The state government of Telangana has decided to transfer amount under Rythu Bandhu Scheme directly into bank accounts of farmers. Now the Telangana Rythu Bandhu Scheme 2019 has been made online.
The state govt. will not issue any more cheques for the farmers as it was done in the 1st & 2nd installments of Rythu Bandhu Yojana 2018.
CM K Chandrashekhar Rao (KCR) said that it would be for the first time that an enhanced amount of Rs. 5,000 per acre per season would be distributed. Previously, CM KCR has raised the assistance amount from Rs. 8,000 per acre to Rs. 10,000 per acre in a single year as cash incentive.
Now process of giving 1st installment for FY 2019 for Kharif season under Rythu Bandhu Scheme in Telangana would be initiated in the last week of May.
This decision is taken in a high-level meeting chaired by CM KCR with the top officials of Agriculture and Finance departments recently.
