It is very important to have farm machinery or equipment for modern agriculture. It is said that where there is less agricultural labor, there is an increase in crop yield. But some farmers are unable to buy expensive agricultural machinery or equipment due to poor economic conditions.


Hence, keeping these things in mind, the Central Government has set up 42000 custom hiring centers in the country that will provide modern agricultural implements to small and marginal farmers of India.

The Government of India has now taken a big step to solve the problem of farmers. In fact, in some states, the government has decided to give a subsidy of up to 100 percent for purchasing agricultural machines or Farm Equipment. This means farmers will not have to spend a single rupee from their pocket to open a custom hiring center.

To promote mechanization in agriculture, the Union Agriculture Ministry has started a scheme called Sub Mission on Agricultural Mechanization (SMAM). Under this, the machines used for plowing, sowing, plantation, harvesting and waste management will now be easily procured. Modern agricultural machinery like land leveler, zero tillage seed drill, happy seeder, mulcher, etc. will be provided so that farming becomes easy and production increases.

100% Subsidy on Agricultural Equipments

A special facility has been provided by the Central Government for farmers of North Eastern Region, in which it has been decided to provide 100 percent financial assistance to build a custom hiring center. However, the scheme which has 100 percent subsidy will get a maximum of Rs 1.25 lakh. So, if the farmers groups in the North-East region spend up to Rs 10 lakh to build a machine bank, then they will get 95 percent subsidy. It is important to note that in other regions, 40 percent assistance will be provided to the general category farmers. While SC, ST, women and small-marginal farmers will get subsidy at the rate of 50 percent.

Mobile App for Renting Agricultural Equipments

To enable farmers to get agricultural machinery easily, the government has launched a mobile app "CHC-Farm Machinery". With this, farmers will easily get all kinds of agricultural machinery including tractors on rent through the CHC-Agricultural Machinery Custom Hiring Centers in their area. The government has named the mobile app as CHC Farm Machinery. This app is available in 12 languages ​​including Hindi, English, Urdu on Google Play Store.

Method to apply for CHC-Agricultural Machinery

If a farmer wants to apply for subsidy on agricultural implements, he can go to CSC (Common Service Center) and apply at register.csc.gov.in/. Here, farmer can tell which machine he needs to the CSC operator. After this, the CSC center operator will give the application number to the farmer.

In addition, farmers can also apply at agrimachinery.nic.in/.
