“In order to secure profits of farmers, the State Government is working persistently and with commitment to make farming a profitable enterprise. Keeping continuous fluctuations on prices of crops in view and to protect farmers from losses the Chief Minister Bhavantar Yojana has been incepted in the State. Primarily timely availability of fertilisers, seed, pesticides medicines, water and electricity for farmers makes him happy and encouraged. His good yield filled his heart full of happiness and he prays to God for good crops as his family’s dreams are linked with the crops,” said Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, while addressing the Antyoday Mela during the Vikas Yatra in Damoh district.In Damoh district in Bathiyagarh block’s village Kakatpur, Govind Patel is a farmer who received an approval letter of Rs 1.25 lakh under the Mukhya Mantri Bhavantar Yojana in the Antyodaya Mela.


Receiving funds under this scheme, the farmers were happy. His son, Govind Patel, who is also engaged in farming and was present in the farm while he was asked on his response to the Mukhya Mantri Bhavantar Yojana, termed it a good initiative towards making the farming a profitable venture. This scheme is in favour of farmers.


Krishna Kumar said that a farmer, who had sown Urad crop in his farm and on selling his yield in Damoh Krishi Upaj Mandi, he got different of price of Rs 1.20 lakh. He said, “We are happy and all our family members are happy”. Patel had sown Chickpea, Masoor and wheat on the land area of 48 acres. He expressed satisfaction on the easy availability of fertiliser, seed and water.


Commenting on irrigation, he said the Panchamnagar Irrigation scheme would be a lifeline for farmers of the region. They are eagerly waiting for the pipeline. When farmers get water from Panchamnagar, the farming scenario of the area would change. He opined that the government should work on controlling injection of middlemen in the Bhavanatar Yojana so that middlemen may not disrupt the benefits of Yojana to the farmers.

In order to make the farming a profitable venture, Finance Minister, Jayant Kumar Mallaiya is leaving no stone unturned. For the irrigation purpose he had developed ponds in the area and started deepening of ponds.


Now in new scheme, the farmers would get water for irrigation through pipeline in their farms. Similarly approvals been given to Judi, Sajli and Satdharu Irrigation project. At present with available resources around 50,000 hectares land is irrigation able while with completion of proposed schemes. The irrigation capacity would be doubled to 1 lakh hectare.
