15th Finance panel hails Odisha's farm package as 'best conceived'
Jan 10, 2019

The visiting 15th Finance Commission chaired by N K Singh extolled Odisha's latest farm package scheme titled KALIA as the best-conceived scheme for the distressed agriculture sector. The commission, though, had an advisory for the state government to focus on crop diversification and enhancing yield, especially of rice.
The panel felt KALIA or Krushak Assistance for Livelihoods & Income Augmentation bettered the typecast farm loan waiver announcements as it catered to all categories of the farm community.
The KALIA scheme in many ways is the best-conceived scheme. It has won all round commendation. The focus now has to be on the scheme implementation. Both identification of the beneficiaries and implementation has to be done in a manner which matches the parameters of credibility and transparency, Singh told reporters here.
