Bhubaneswar: In a significant development, farmers can also use the photocopies of the “Green Forms’’ to apply for KALIA Scheme (Krushak Assistance for Livelihood and Income Augmentation).
The State Government has urged the farmers not to pay anything to any middlemen to get the “Green Forms’’ in order to apply for KALIA Scheme.
The State Government has also urged the farmers to download the “Green Forms’’ from the website of KALIA Scheme www.kalia.co.in, print them and fill them up as their application. They can also take the photocopies of the “Green Forms’’ available with other villagers or farmers and after duly filling the papers drop them in the “Green Boxes” in Gram Panchayat Office.
Notably, the KALIA Scheme was launched by the State Government on December 22, with an objective to accelerate agricultural prosperity and reduce poverty across Odisha. The State Government has also urged all the small and marginal farmers, cultivators, vulnerable agriculture households, and landless agriculture labourers to visit office of every gram panchayat and join KALIA Scheme as per the laid down eligibility criteria.
