Rythu Bandhu

The Rythu Bandhu scheme of the Telangana government, which is also known as Agriculture Investment Support Scheme, is a welfare scheme aimed at incentivising the state’s farmers for their day to day work. Under this scheme around 58 lakh farmers are provided Rs.4,000 per acre, per season to support farm investment twice a year. This is to eliminate debt traps – the main reason behind farmer suicides. The state government has sanctioned Rs.7,300 crore for the second phase for this rabi season.
