TN Uzhavar Aluvalar Thodarbu Thittam Scheme 2020 to Bridge Gap B/w Farmers and Officials

Tamil Nadu government has launched the TN Uzhavar Aluvalar Thodarbu Thittam Scheme 2020. With this scheme, govt. tries to bridge the gap b/w farmers and officials in all village panchayats. The Tamilnadu state government has issued an order to this effect on 17 November 2020. The main aim is to realize the PM Modi's vision of Doubling Farmers Income by 2022.

TN Uzhavar Aluvalar Thodarbu Thittam Scheme 2020

The main objective of TN Uzhavar Aluvalar Thodarbu Thittam Scheme 2020 is to help in the dissemination of crop technology to farmers. Moreover, this initiative will help in collecting updates on the condition of crops from farmers. The state govt. wants to improve the conditions of farmers in the state and raise their living standards.

Implementation of TN Uzhavar Aluvalar Thodarbu Thittam Scheme

Under the TN Uzhavar Aluvalar Thodarbu Thittam Scheme in each village panchayat, 10 farmers would be identified. Out of these, at-least 2 will belong to SC/ST communities to be trained in technology and other aspects of agriculture. These farmers will be those who have already adopted new technologies or those with the inclination to learn. The new scheme will act as a bridge between the agriculture and horticulture departments and other farmers in the panchayat.

Formation of New Extension System

A new extension system will be formed under TN Uzhavar Aluvalar Thodarbu Thittam Scheme. It is a part with which the number of visits of the block teams to the village panchayats will be increased. There will be two extension teams in the block. The Block Extension Team (BET) of Agriculture will have the Assistant Director of Agriculture (ADA) as Head and Research Scientist of TNAU, Agriculture Officer (AO) and Deputy AO as members. For the BET of Horticulture, a similar team which will have the Assistant Director of Horticulture as head, is to be formed.

It should be ensured that each Village Panchayat is visited extensively by an Assistant Agriculture/Horticulture officer, at least once in a fortnight and by an AO / Deputy AO and HO / Deputy HO once in a month as far as possible. The local prevailing priorities / crop conditions in the Village Panchayat are to be considered while fixing the schedule,” the order stated.

The details of these visits will be logged into a dedicated mobile app for the use of officials. The announcement of the scheme was made by Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam during his budget speech.
