ZIRO, Sep 14: A coordination meeting of District Level Implementation cum monitoring Committee ( DLIMC) for Atma Nirbhar Krishi Yojna and Atma Nirbhar Bagwani Yojna of Agriculture and Horticulture department respectively  was held in the office of the Deputy Commissioner today.
The Atma Nirbhar Krishi Yojna and the Atma Nirbhar Bagwani Yojna schemes has been conceived as an umbrella scheme, wherein all the erstwhile schemes of the departments will be subsumed under a new credit linked subsidy scheme.
The scheme launched by Chief Minister on 3rd September 2021 aims  to ensure doubling farmers income through end to end holistic approach covering pre-production, production, post harvests management, processing and marketing to assure appropriate returns to the growers.
Addressing the officials of both Agriculture and Horticulture Department, Deputy Commissioner Somcha Lowang said that the role of these two departments in enhancing the livelihood of the poor is of utmost importance and called for implementing the  schemes  in true spirit. 
She further advised the departments to adhere to the timeline issued by the government for ensuring time bound implementation of the scheme.
Terming the role of the PRI members in selecting genuine beneficiaries without any political affiliations as vital, she requested the Zilla Chairperson Likha Sangchhore to issue circulars to all the ZPMs and GPCs to assist the departments in listing genuine beneficiaries. "The success of these scheme will depend on the  people we select as beneficiaries," she added.

While seeking cooperation from the bankers in providing hassle free credit facilities to the farmers, she added that the banks are a vital link of these schemes."Without your timely  cooperation, the implementation will be unsuccessful as agricultural and horticultural activities are time and season bound," she added.
The members also discussed about the collateral security desired by the banks. Since most of the marginal farmers don't possess LPCs which is required for mortgages, the committee decided to apprise the higher authorities for further directions.
DAO Tasso Butung briefed about the various components of the schemes.
Among others DHO Komri Murtem, representatives of banks and Arunachal State Rural Livelihoods Mission (ArSRLM) attended the meeting. DIPRO
