Agency News

Farmers to be allowed to set up solar units on barren/fallow lands; supply power to grids, says Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in the Budget 2020.

“Farm markets need to be liberalised, farming need to be made more competitive, hand-holding of farm-based activities need to be provided, sustainable cropping patterns and more tech needed,” FM said.

Comprehensive measures will be taken for 100 water-stressed districts being proposed.
