New Delhi: Atmanirbhar Bharat (Self-reliant India) Is the country moving forward little by little on that path? This time Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a new project in fish farming. This time the central government will help the people involved in fish farming through the Fisheries Resources Scheme. This is the first time the government has launched an app for farmers in the country. The center will help the farmers of the country in various ways through that app called e-Gopal. The government will invest Rs 20,050 crore in the Matsya Sampada Yojana (PMMSY) project between 2020-21 and 2024-25. The Prime Minister said the investment was aimed at realizing the idea of a self-reliant India.
According to the Prime Minister’s Office, there has never been such a huge investment in fish farming in the country. Such an initiative has been reported to encourage people involved in fish farming. Besides, the government also aims to increase the fish farming sector. The Prime Minister also promised to use many more sophisticated technologies in fish farming and animal husbandry in the future. Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has lauded the central government’s initiative in fish farming. He claimed that this investment will encourage many people to cultivate fish. He also said that the move would take India one step further towards self-reliance.
There is still no official app for farmers in this country. With this first e-Gopal app, farmers will be able to sell their crops and buy seeds again. There will also be opportunities to buy pesticides or medicines for livestock. Farmers will even get solutions to various problems through the app. Farmers will also get information from the e-Gopal app on various issues including vaccination of children and testing pregnant women. Meanwhile, the central government has said that India could earn Rs 1 lakh crore from fish exports in 2024-25 fiscal.
