Gujarat Government will cover 4000 villages under the Kisan Suryoday Yojana by the end of this month. This was announced by Chief Minister Vijay Rupani at Bayad in North Gujarat. He was speaking after the launching of the North Gujarat leg of ambitious Kisan Suryoday Yojana.
Kisan Suryoday Yojana was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Gujarat last year. Under this ambitious scheme, farmers are getting the day time agriculture power supply. Gujarat Government has planned to cover all the villages under this scheme by the end of 2022. 1 lakh farmers have been covered under this scheme in the first phase while the second phase will cover 1 lakh 90 thousand farmers.
Under this scheme, the state government is going to install new transmission lines and sub-stations at an estimated cost of Rs. 35 thousand crore in three years. The aim of this scheme is to protect the farmers from snakes and other wild animals during the night time.
