Samudra Sathi Scheme in WB Budget 2024-25

On 8th February 2024, Finance Minister presented West Bengal Budget 2024-25. While presenting the budget FM said "Our fishermen of the coastal districts viz. Purba Medinipur, North 24 Parganas and South 24 Parganas go deep in the turbulent sea to earn their livelihood. As there is ban in fishing for two months during mid April to mid-June, the livelihood of the fishermen is adversely impacted. In order to provide livelihood support to the fishermen during the fishing ban period of two months, I am happy to announce a new scheme - Samudra Sathi to extend financial assistance of Rs. 5,000 per month for two months, to each registered fishermen of these three districts. This scheme will benefit nearly 2 lakh fishermen. I propose to allocate Rs. 200 crore for this purpose".

WB Samudra Sathi Scheme Objective

The fishers eke out their livelihood through fishing in Marine/ Fresh water bodies. Unlike terrestrial activities, the fishing activity in coastal waters and inland water bodies cannot be carried out for the entire year. Generally for 2 months i.e mid April to mid June, fishing activities are banned. During this period, fishermen faces difficulty in earning even for their basic neccessities. 

To ensure fishermen meet their basic livelihood requirements, West Bengal govt. has launched Samudra Sathi scheme. Through this scheme, the state govt. will provide financial assistance to fishermen for the period of 2 months when they cannot do fishing in the coastal waters, inland water bodies or seas..
