Chandigarh, May 10 (PTI) Haryana agriculture minister J P Dalal on Tuesday launched the 'Chaara-Bijaee Yojana' scheme, under which a farmer growing fodder and supplying the produce to cowsheds will get a financial assistance of Rs 10,000 per acre.

If a farmer grows fodder on up to 10 acres of land around the gaushalas (cowsheds) and provides it to them through mutual consent, the state government will provide financial assistance to such farmers at the rate of Rs 10,000 per acre, said Dalal.

The amount will be transferred to the bank accounts of farmers through direct benefit transfer mode, he said.
