ANSWER
MINISTER OF AGRICULTURE AND FARMERS WELFARE

 (SHRI NARENDRA SINGH TOMAR)

(a): Government of India has been promoting Organic farming in the country through dedicated scheme namely Paramparagat Krishi Vikas Yojana (PKVY) since 2015-16. The scheme stresses on end to end support to organic farmers i.e from production to certification and marketing. Post harvest management support including processing, packing, marketing is made integral part of these schemes to encourage organic farmers.

Under PKVY, farmers are provided financial assistance of Rs 50,000 per hectare/ 3 years, out of which Rs. 31,000 (62%) is provided directly through DBT for inputs (bio fertilizers, bio-pesticides, organic manure, compost, vermi-compost, botanical extracts etc).

Aims and objectives of the PKVY Scheme:

  • To promote natural resource based integrated and climate resilient sustainable farming systems that ensure maintenance and increase of soil fertility, natural resource conservation, on-farm nutrient recycling and minimize dependence of farmers on external inputs;

  • To reduce cost of agriculture to farmers through sustainable integrated organic farming systems thereby enhancing farmer’s net income per unit of land.

  • To sustainably produce chemical free and nutritious food for human consumption.

  • To protect environment from hazardous inorganic chemicals by adoption of eco- friendly low-cost traditional techniques and farmer friendly technologies.

  • To bring large contiguous traditional/ default organic areas under organic certification and empowering the farmers of such areas with market linkages;

  • To facilitate certification access to individual and small farmer groups not covered by any scheme.

  • To empower farmers through their own institutional development in the form of clusters and groups with capacity to manage production, processing, value addition and certification management in value chain mode;

  • To make farmers entrepreneurs through direct market linkages with local and export trade houses/ chains.

  • Ensuring professional handholding for transforming so developed cluster into business enterprises for better value realization of their premium organic produce

(b) & (c): A total amount of Rs 73.06 crore has been released to Odisha for 1040 clusters benefitting 39215 farmers including 924 farmers in Nawapada and 3608 farmers in Kalahandi district covering an area of 20800 ha since 2015-16 to till date.
