Government Decided to Provide 1.5 lakh loans for dairy farmers

Chief minister Pramod Sawant on Sunday said that the government has decided to provide loans of Rs1.5 lakh without collateral to around 9,000 dairy farmers in the state under the central government’s Kishan credit card (KCC) scheme.

Sawant said that the state government will start a drive to disburse the loan to farmers from July 31. The chief minister held a meeting with Goa Dairy, Surat district cooperative milk producers union ltd (Sumul) dairy, director and secretary of veterinary services along with officials of the State Bank of India (SBI) and Goa State Cooperative Bank.

Sawant told that there are around 9,000 milk farmers in the state, including two to three farmers in one family. “If we consider one farmer in each family then there are around 9,000 milk farmers in the state,” he said. Sawant said if farmers pay their loans regularly then the loan would be interest free. “We have organised a milk societies’ convention in both districts of the state. The North Goa convention would be held at Ravindra Bhavan at Shakali and the south Goa meet would be held at Margao,” he said.
