The Union Cabinet has approved a new Umbrella Scheme called “Pradhan Mantri Annadata Aay Sanrakshan Abhiyan’ (PM-AASHA). The new scheme is giving a major boost to the pro-farmer initiatives of the Government and the government has kept with its commitment and dedication for the Annadata.
Why such a Scheme?
Increasing MSP is not adequate and it is more important that farmers should get full benefit of the announced MSP. For this, government realizes that it is essential that if price of the agriculture produce market is less than MSP, then govt. should purchase either at MSP or work in a manner to provide MSP for the farmers through some other mechanism.
