KALIA Scheme: 65 Lakh “Green Forms” collected for Phase-I

Bhubaneswar:168/18/19: With more than 65 lakh “Green Forms” received so far, for the inclusion of farmers into the much-awaited KALIA Scheme, 14,000 data entry operators have started a massive task to enter the data for the beneficiaries across Odisha at block-level.

All district collectors are constantly monitoring the data entry operations by visiting data processing centres at block-level. The State Government has also appointed 28 senior officials as observers for all districts to coordinate smooth management of the KALIA (Krushak Assistance for Livelihood and Income Augmentation) Scheme across the State.

In order to facilitate inclusion of all beneficiaries to the KALIA Scheme, the State Government earlier had asked the farmers to apply through “Green Form” by January 10. However, later the date was extended to January 15 for the Phase I inclusion.

The KALIA Scheme will help small and marginal farmers, agricultural household, vulnerable agricultural households, landless agriculture labourers and sharecroppers. It would also have life insurance support to cultivators and landless agriculture labourers.
