Chandigarh, 
26 July, 2019

Under a special scheme, 50,000 solar pumps will be given to farmers and gaushalas in Haryana with the assistance of NABARD. 

Minister of State for New and Renewable Energy, Dr Banwari Lal said that about Rs 1,696 Crore would be spent on this scheme.

He was speaking in the state-level launch and distribution program of ‘Manohar Jyoti Ghar Prakash Pranali’ in Kadipur village of district Mahendragarh on Friday.

Lal said that about 238 MW of green energy would be generated in the state with the installation of these solar pumps.

The minister said that in order to increase the income of the farmers, the government has prepared a draft for pilot project in districts Karnal and Yamunanagar with the aim of reducing the electricity subsidy provided in the agriculture sector. 

Under this scheme, 11 agricultural feeders have been selected, under which 468 electricity based tube wells will be converted into energy-based tube wells. The extra electricity produced from these solar energy-based tube wells will be provided to the farmers. About Rs 26 crore is estimated to be spent on this scheme, he added.
