On 28 July 2022, the Nitish Kumar government in Bihar decided to provide diesel subsidies for agricultural use for the next three months. According to Amrendra Pratap Singh, the state's agriculture minister, farmers can receive a monthly subsidy of Rs 600 per acre up to a maximum of 8 acres.

"We have decided to provide farmers with affordable irrigation. Bihar comprises a sizable portion of the drought zone. As a result, it was decided to give them diesel subsidies”, he stated.

Due to the drought-like conditions caused by insufficient rainfall in Kharif 2022, the government has directed farmers to irrigate Kharif crops with diesel-powered pump sets. The online application for diesel subsidies will begin on July 29, 2022.

Farmers in Bihar will receive the subsidy from July 29 to October 30. A farmer is only eligible for a maximum subsidy for his or her 8 acres. Farmers with more than 8 acres may not submit claims that exceed the established limits.

Benefits of Bihar Diesel Anudan Yojana:

• On the diesel purchased for using diesel pumps to irrigate Kharif crops, Rs 600 per acre would be provided as an irrigation diesel subsidy for Rs. 60 per liter.
• A maximum of 8 acres would be allotted per farmer for the diesel subsidies.
• The concerned ward member and agriculture coordinator will identify those farmers who cultivate on other people's land (non-ryot) and authenticate/verify them. Only the person who is farming should benefit from the grant, it will be kept in mind when verifying. Only farmers who genuinely use diesel for irrigation should submit applications under this scheme. The concerned Agriculture Coordinator will look into the purchase and use of diesel for irrigation.
• The digital acknowledgment receipt (digital voucher), which includes the last ten digits of the farmer's 13-digit registration number, will be valid after purchasing diesel from an approved gas station.
• Diesel purchased for irrigation till October 30, 2022, will be accepted.
• Given the drought-like situation due to scanty rainfall, 16 hours of uninterrupted power supply is being provided by the state government from agricultural feeders.

Only online registered farmers will benefit from this scheme. Farmers are requested to visit the website of the Agriculture Department, Government of Bihar https://state.bihar.gov.in/krishi/CitizenHome.html on the given link DBT in Agriculture or https://dbtagriculture.bihar.gov.
