KCC to be provided to every farmer in J-K: Minister

"KCC will be provided to every farmer in the state," Jammu and Kashmir Agriculture Minister Ghulam Hassan Mir said at a function organised by department of Agriculture and Jammu and Kashmir Bank in Pulwama district yesterday.

The scheme has been launched to make available financial support to the farming community, the minister said while distributing the cards among 1,000 farmers.

Mir asked the farmers to utilise the money judiciously and to return the amount to the bank in due course of time for the success of the scheme.

Appreciating the generosity of the Jammu and Kashmir bank for issuing KCCs to the farmers, the Minister said the scheme would benefit the farmers by boosting agriculture activities and helping them to meet timely the short term credit requirements for cultivation of crops, post harvest expenses and loans for the produce of marketing.
