Photo by: Praveen Khanna) Related News Zaheer Ahmed a 12 bigha (two-acre) farmer from Chhajlet village in Kanth tehsil of Moradabad district bought two 40-kg bags of the high-yielding HD-2967 wheat variety seeds on November 15 That purchase from the Uttar Pradesh agriculture department’s local seed store cost him Rs 2400 On November 26 he got Rs 1120 credited to his account at the Prathama regional rural bank with the passbook entry showing it as a NEFT or National Electronic Funds Transfer from the UP treasury READ:UP shows way in direct subsidy payment to farmers “I got the money (subsidy on the seed) without any problem It’s better than buying at Rs 1280 which is what I am effectively paying for the two bags” says Ahmed But how is paying Rs 2400 upfront and then claiming Rs 1120 as subsidy better than buying straightaway at Rs 1280 “It’s simple If something is offered at a subsidised rate it is prone to be bought by traders and resold at a higher price Here there is no scope for diversion as the seeds are being sold at the market rate and farmers not traders are getting the subsidy transferred separately into their bank accounts” he explains READ: A tale of two extremes Farmers like Ahmed are beneficiaries of a direct benefit transfer (DBT) system introduced by the UP government from the 2015 kharif crop season Under it subsidy on seeds and other inputs are credited directly to the bank accounts of farmers registered with the state agriculture department’s online DBT portal Since every farmer has a unique ‘Kisan ID’ number carrying all relevant information including that of his bank account to which transfers are to be made the subsidy due to him is less likely to go to somebody else Farmers purchasing wheat seeds from a government outlet in Moradabad (Express Photo by: Praveen Khanna) Moreover the state government has capped the subsidy to a maximum area of five acres corresponding to the holding limit for a ‘small farmer’ At one bag of wheat seeds per acre it translates into a maximum subsidy of Rs 2800 per farmer “This again is good for small farmers like me Earlier the big farmers or even traders with connections to local agriculture and cooperative department officials would take much of the available subsidised bags in their trolleys leaving very little for others But now it is pehle aao pehle paao (first-come first-served) and nobody big or small gets more than five bags So the subsidy goes to 1000 farmers as against 500 previously” Ahmed points out In the new system the farmer pays by cash and collects the receipt against his purchase from the seed store-in-charge The latter deposits the monies received thus from all farmers to the state government’s designated nationalised bank account the following day He also submits online the list of farmers with their respective subsidy claims to the district agricultural officer who verifies these against the information already entered in the DBT portal The claims are further checked at the next level of the deputy director of agriculture for the district who approves the payment from the treasury to be directly made into the individual farmer accounts “The whole process is transparent and most subsidy transfers take not more than ten days from the date of purchase” claims Jitendra Kumar Tomar joint director of agriculture for the Moradabad division that also covers Bijnor Amroha Sambhal and Rampur districts The UP government has for the ongoing rabi 2015-16 season fixed the seed subsidy at Rs 1400 per quintal for wheat and a flat Rs 3300/quintal on pulses (chana matar and masur) The corresponding notified per-quintal market rates — which farmers need to shell out upfront — are Rs 3000 for wheat seeds Rs 6790 for red chana Rs 8650 for white kabuli chana Rs 5260 for matar Rs 9150 for large-seeded masur and Rs 9230 for small-seeded masur For kharif 2015 the DBT subsidy was limited to hybrid paddy seeds marketed by private players like Bayer CropScience DuPont-Pioneer Tata-Metahelix Nuziveedu and VNR Seeds These firms sold the seeds under the agriculture department’s supervision at prices ranging from Rs 270 to Rs 294 per kg — at six kg per acre — and the subsidy entitlement was set at Rs 130 per kg But can the DBT scheme be extended to other inputs especially fertilisers that are a big-ticket subsidy item for the Centre costing well over Rs 100000 crore annually if fully provided for Most farmers The Indian Express interacted with in Moradabad and Bijnor seemed unanimous that subsidy delivered through DBT did reach the right persons Be it the subsidy on seeds or the state government’s Rs 2860 per quintal relief payment to cane farmers there were no complaints of money not getting credited to bank accounts of the intended beneficiaries The one significant concern that farmers raised with regard to DBT pertained to the upfront money to be paid In the case of seeds this is a one-time affair entailing an expense of not more than Rs 6000 for a farmer planting five acres of wheat In fertilisers however it is a different ball game where a wheat farmer would have to apply about two 50-kg bags of urea one bag of di-ammonium phosphate (DAP) and 1-15 bags of 12:32:16 complex fertiliser per acre Even at the current subsidised rates — Rs 348/bag for neem-coated urea Rs 1191 for DAP and Rs 1075 for 12:32:16 — the total expenditure works out to over Rs 3500 per acre or Rs 17500 for five acres “If we were to pay the actual market rate the outgo would probably double Not all farmers can afford this in today’s context” notes Subodh Kumar who farms seven acres at Pipli Jat village of Bijnor’s Chandpur tehsil Farmers in his area are suffering the twin-blow of a crash in basmati paddy prices and not being paid fully for cane supplied to mills even in the last 2014-15 sugar season (October-September) “In 2013 we sold Pusa-1509 variety paddy for Rs 4400-4500 per quintal Last year it fell to Rs 2400-2500 and this time all we got was Rs 1200-1400 How can we pay more for inputs when our own crop realisations are virtually halving each year which is unheard of in any industry” he quips It is no different with cane Even as crushing for the new 2015-16 season has started UP sugar mills as on December 7 owed farmers Rs 2445 crore against the cane crushed in 2014-15 and valued at Rs 20645 crore at the state advised price of Rs 280 per quintal “There has been no payment from mills after March For most farmers even bare survival is in doubt” adds Kumar So much for DBT For all the latest India News
