On Wednesday, November 10 in Chandigarh, Haryana Agriculture minister JP Dalal met with the Union Minister of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying, Parshottam Rupala and the Union Minister of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Narendra Singh Tomar in Delhi to discuss various schemes related to agriculture, animal husbandry, fisheries and milk production. 

JP Dalal told the union minister about the increase in the compensation amount for crop loss to farmers from 12000 rs to 15000 rs and hence also requested him to release the compensation amount as soon as possible. He also told Union Minister Parshottam Rupala on the state's progress in milk production, animal husbandry, and fisheries during a meeting. 

Rupala stated that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's mission is to quadruple farmers' income by encouraging them to diversify their income beyond agriculture, and the Pradhan Mantri Matsya Sampada Yojana is a component of this goal that has aided fish raising farmers. 

Under this plan, General Caste users receive 40% financial help, while Scheduled Caste and Women recipients receive 60% financial aid. 

Matsya Sampada Yojana of the Pradhan Mantri Matsya Sampada Yojana of the Pradhan Mantri Matsya Sampada (PMMSY) As part of the Aatmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan, PMMSY is a flagship initiative for targeted and sustainable growth of the country's fisheries industry.

It aims to close critical gaps in fish production and productivity, quality, technology, post-harvest infrastructure and management, value chain modernization and strengthening, traceability, the development of a solid fisheries management framework, and fish welfare.

And is a scheme that consists of two unique components:

1) (a) the Central Sector Scheme (CS) and (b) the Centrally Sponsored Scheme (CSS).

2) Pradhan Mantri Matsya Sampada has also been authorised to invest a total of Rs. 20,055 crore.

These remunerations to the farmers via the schemes will surely help them tide over the losses they had faced in this cropping season and help them start on a clean slate in the upcoming one.
