Application Process and Selection Criteria

Online applications are being welcomed from SC farmers registered on the MFMB (Market Facilitation and Marketing Assistance for Farmers) portal, who also possess land ownership. The selection of beneficiaries will be conducted via a draw of lots overseen by the district-level executive committee, chaired by the respective Deputy Commissioner.
