Sarbananda Sonowal – Chief Minister, Assam:
Taking a giant leap towards fulfilling the great vision of PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji — doubling farmers’ income by 2022, ceremonially started the distribution of Pumps to farmers under Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana (PMKSY) at Amingaon.
Under the scheme, 9,699 pumps will be distributed, benefitting 35,793 farmers of Assam for which ₹ 539.05 crore has been sanctioned.
These pumping systems will play a vital role in providing modern irrigation to 3 lakh bigha agricultural land, thus increasing productivity.
Modern agriculture requires irrigation solutions for optimum use of water resources.
Our Govt has been constantly working on empowering the farmers with state-of-the-art equipments & latest technology to leverage full potential of agriculture to transform rural areas.
