The Andhra Pradesh government in 2019 had launched a welfare scheme, Rythu Bharosa, to assist the financially vulnerable farmers of the state. This scheme was launched in order to provide financial assistance to the farmers.
The farmers under this scheme are eligible to seek the assistance of ₹ 13, 500 on an annual basis. Out of this, ₹ 7,500 is to be contributed by the state government and ₹ 6,000 is contributed by the Central government under Kissan Samman Nidhi Scheme. The state government has allocated a budget of ₹ 5,500 crores towards this scheme and all the initial beneficiaries are likely to receive around ₹ 4,00,000.
Apart from the financial aid, the scheme also aims to provide free bore wells and zero-interest loans to its eligible farmers. The scheme also undertakes the task of providing life insurance cover to the dependents of the eligible farmers. To reap the benefit of this scheme, the farmers have to make sure that they fall under the eligibility criteria.
The scheme was implemented in October 2019 and the first instalment of the scheme was due on 15 May 2020. In case you are one of the beneficiaries of the scheme and await the bank transfer, then you can check your payment status on Rythu Bharosa official website.
