Union Cabinet has approved the extension of Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana  by renaming Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana- Remunerative Approaches for Agriculture and Allied sector Rejuvenation (RKVY-RAFTAAR) for 3 years.

The main aim is to strengthen the farmers effort, risk mitigation and promoting agri-business . The financial allocation for the scheme is Rs 15,722 crore.

As per the RKVY-RAFTAAR scheme funds will be provided as 60:40 ratio between Centre and state. For North Easter States and Himalayan states it would be 90:10 ration between Centre and State.

50% Funds will be allocated to Infrastructure and assets, 30 % of funds to Value addition linked production projects and 20% of outlay will be flexi-funds(which can use by state for local needs)

About RKVY:
