DM of Kushinagar, Uttar Pradesh, S Rajalingam said that on the instructions of the Director of Fisheries Uttar Pradesh, Lucknow, the camp will be put up on Tuesday. 

DM informed that according to the guidelines of the Government of India & Reserve Bank of India, a special campaign has been set to distribute Kisan Credit Cards to 2 lakh fish farmers of the state by running a special campaign to provide the facility of Kisan Credit Card to the fish farmers. For the Kushinagar district, KCC will be distributed to a total of 4100 fishermen & vendors.

He said that block-wise camp would be organized every Tuesday from 11 pm to 3 pm. The camps are being organized in all the block premises. In this, it is mandatory to bring an Aadhar card, bank account, photo, and mobile number along with the application form.

Department of Animal Husbandry Issues KCC to Livestock Farmers

  • Under the scheme of the central government to promote milk production, thousands of livestock farmers of the district will get easy maintenance of their animals & income will also increase due to an increase in milk production.

  • For this, the Animal Husbandry Department will issue Kisan Credit Cards (KCC) from banks to the livestock farmers in coordination & cooperation with other departments.

  • Special camps have been started at the block level for making KCC and in the last 2 camps; applications from more than 200 cattle farmers have been received.

  • According to officials, the government has given a target of issuing KCC to 16643 cattle farmers of the district.

About 4.50 lakh Farmers in the District

  • All the landless villagers, including farmers, have kept about 7 lakh bovine and Mahishvanshi (buffalo species) cattle to earn a livelihood from milk production.

  • Because of the limited economic resources of most of the small-marginal category farmers with low holdings, their priority is to meet the needs of crops and households.

  • Due to this, they are not able to make better arrangements for fodder, maintenance, etc. for the animals.

  • To overcome this problem, the Central Government has decided to issue KCC to the landless cattle rearers and contract farming sharecroppers like normal farmers.

Get a loan of Up to Rs 1.60 lakh

  • Under the scheme, instructions have been given to issue the KCC with a loan limit of up to Rs 1.60 lakh without any guarantor.

  • Those desirous of availing KCC with a loan limit above this will have to mobilize guarantors who have had undisputed KCC transactions in the past and also have a financial standing.

  • KCC with a higher credit limit may be needed by those cattle farmers who have set up a large dairy project despite limited capital or have kept a large number of cattle for agricultural purposes.
