YSR Jala Kala Scheme 2024 – How to Apply, Eligibility & Benefits

YSR Jala Kala Scheme 2024 – How to Apply, Eligibility & Benefits: The Andhra Pradesh government launched the YSR Jala kale scheme in September. This scheme is expected to help the farmers to dig bore wells free of cost for their agricultural needs. Most farmers depend on natural resources for irrigation, but natural resources are only available in some parts of the state. Helping the farmers dig the bore wells free of cost enables them to continue their agricultural work and helps to increase their income. Drilling bore wells is expensive, and small farmers need help to afford this or will have to take debt. To avoid such situations, the government launched this scheme.

YSR Jala Kala Scheme 2024

The YSR Jala Kala Scheme was launched by the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh on 28 September 2020. It aims to provide free borewells to all ranches in the state to support farmers who heavily rely on natural water resources for irrigation. Due to high drought statistics, using natural groundwater for irrigation is challenging. The free borewells will enable farmers to continue their practices, increasing income through larger crops.

Objectives of the YSR Jala Kala Scheme

During the 3,648-km padayatra, the Chief Minister (CM) interacted with dry fields and indebted farmers who had dug borewells. In response, CM Jagan promised to provide borewells to upland farmers as part of the nine guarantees made by the YSRC before the elections. Eligible farmers can apply online or through town secretariats, and their applications will undergo hydrogeological and geophysical reviews. Once approved, a technical team will assess groundwater levels and authorize the borewell drilling contractor.

Benefits of the YSR Jala Kala Scheme 

The YSR Jala Kala Scheme aims to benefit 3 lakh farmers by providing them with a reliable underground water system to prevent drought-related issues. Farmers will receive instant SMS notifications upon successful application. The village secretariat will handle implementation, ensuring smooth development. Construction will be expedited to provide all beneficiaries prompt access to irrigation facilities.

Farmers will be the beneficiaries.
