Water use efficiency in farming is one of the important ways to save water, especially when about 70 percent of freshwater is withdrawn for agricultural purposes in India. Hence, crop diversification with provisions of incentives is essential to boost water use efficiency. In this backdrop, government in Haryana launched ‘Mera Pani Meri Virasat’ scheme for replacement of paddy by maize, cotton, pulses etc. in one lakh hectare in targeted blocks having water table over 40 meters.

Let us know about this scheme and understand its rules to avail the benefits 

Mera Pani Meri Virasat Scheme 

Mera Pani Meri Virasat Scheme has been launched by Chief Minister of Haryana Manohar Lal Khattar. Under this scheme, the state government will provide Rs. 7,000 per acre to those farmers who will diversify more than 50 percent of their kharif season paddy area. Also, farmers will not be allowed to grow paddy in any new areas where paddy was not cultivated the preceding year.

Motive of Mera Pani Meri Virasat Scheme 

While Haryana government wants to save the ground water through this scheme, at the same time, it is also encouraging the farmers to produce other crops. If a farmer produces crops such as cotton, tur, maize, bajra, urad & moong instead of traditional cultivation of paddy, then they will be given a financial assistance of Rs 7,000. Apart from this, subsidy up to 80% will also be given on the micro irrigation.
