Tractor is the most important agricultural machinery for farmers. Farming becomes easy by connecting multiple implements with a tractor. Tractor also plays an important role in the preparation of the field. Tractor saves both time and labor.

But many farmers whose economic condition is weak, are not able to buy it. Keeping this in mind, the subsidy is given by the government to such farmers to buy tractors. This subsidy is provided by different state governments as per the rules set by them.

Generally, 20% to 50% subsidy is given by the government for the purchase of tractors. In this, priority is given to women and farmers belonging to scheduled castes and scheduled tribes.
