The rural storage scheme is a fully center-run scheme. The main intention of this scheme is to provide loan for construction of godown for storage of agricultural produce. The scheme was started in the year 2001-2002. Not every farmer in our country is financially capable enough to build a collection place to store his produce.
Until the farmers get a nutritious price for their produce, the facility to handle their produce is available with very few farmers. Keeping this in mind, our Central Government flag Gramin Bhandaran Yojana has been constructed. Under this scheme, loan will be given to the farmer to make storage for the government. Subsidy will also be provided by the government in the loan given to the farmer under this scheme.
Under this scheme loan will be given for construction of godown.
Subsidy will be provided to you on the loan given.
Under this scheme, to eliminate the compulsion of farmers to sell the crop due to the crisis and pressures immediately after harvesting.
To create scientific storage capacity in rural areas to meet the needs of farmers.
