Out of the total proposed amount Rs 163.1 crore for the current financial year, Rs 82.87 crore is Central share, Rs 48.58 crore is State share and Rs 3.62 crore beneficiary share, it stated.

According to the central government, the Pradhan Mantri Matsya Sampada Yojana (PMMSY) is a flagship scheme which is focused on the fisheries sector. As a part of the Aatma Nirbhar Bharat package, the Centre will invest Rs 20,050 crore for its implementation during 2020-21 to 2024-25.
