After The Snow
The government of Jammu and Kashmir after the recent untimely snow and heavy rains has decided to compensate the farmers and orchardists so that they can stand again as they have suffered a lot of damage in their orchards.
LG Manoj Sinha recently said that his administration will be extending all possible support to the famers and introducing new reforms to make J&K a leading region in Horticulture and Agriculture production.
Recent heavy rain, hailstorm and snow affecting the crops have been declared a natural calamity and UT-specific disaster. Government will provide relief to all the farmers, who have suffered damages.
He highlighted the impact of initiatives like the Apple festival that brings the farming community, scientists and buyers together.
He also assured the farmers of Jammu and Kashmir that there would be seller-Buyer meets, awareness and technical sessions during the two-day festival that will bring all stakeholders to a common platform.
Government said that they would be standing firmly with farmers and have replaced the regressive laws with progressive reforms for the welfare of the people of J&K.
Jammu and Kashmir is at the fifth place in terms of farm income across the country. The multifold increase in the income of the farmers of the UT is the result of the government’s commitment to work for the betterment of the farming community.
