“We have identified thirty-eight thousand farmers in Goa out of which twenty-one thousand are eligible to apply under this scheme,” said Kavelekar.

Speaking about the funds of the scheme Kavlekar said, “the centre has allotted nine lakh crores for this scheme. Under this scheme the framer’s account can be opened with zero balance and he can use it for saving money as well, hence he has two fold benefits.
