Atal Solar Krishi Pump Yojana

The government of Maharashtra introduced the Atal Solar Krishi Pump Yojana to reduce losses due to non-payment of electricity bills and also promote solar energy. The features of the Atal Solar Krishi Pump Yojana are:

  • The government would provide solar pumps at subsidised rates for the farmers.
  • Under the Scheme, farmers with less than five acres will have to pay 5 per cent of the cost of a 3 HP solar pump while farmers with more than five acres will get a 5 HP solar pump for Rs 30000.

With the scheme, the government aims to reach out to farmers from remote areas where the agricultural feeder is not possible.
