Artificial irrigation is the only way to meet the water requirements in the farms. But small and marginal farmers don’t have enough money to purchase irrigation water pumps, which are power by electricity. Thus, the state government has come to their rescue with the launch of Saur Sinchayee Yojana. This scheme offers financial assistance to farmers so that they can purchase irrigational pumps, which are powered by solar panels.
