Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that arrangement for Mahabonus has been made for the farmers by the Government through Bhavantar Bhugtan Yojana. Registration is mandatory to avail benefit of this scheme. Farmers should not forget to get themselves registered otherwise they will not be able to derive the benefit of the scheme. Chouhan was addressing all the gram sabhas live on Thursday.

While deliberating in detail about the Bhavantar Bhugtan Yojana, its procedure and effects, he informed that the problems of farmers who are producing maize will be solved. The number of consumers for changing burn out transformers has been reduced to 50 percent in place of 75. Beside this, the amount deposited to change the transformers has been reduced to 20 per cent from 40. Sixteen procurement centers will be started in cotton producing districts after the Deepawali.

Expressing concern over the less registration by the farmers under the scheme, Chouhan appealed to the farmers to get themselves registered necessarily before the last date. The state government is government of common men, poor and farmers, which has always been with the farmers during the crisis. The government is leaving no stone unturned to make the agriculture a profitable occupation. Chouhan mentioned that fall has been registered in the market rates of agriculture produces owing to bumper production.

The Government despite problem of storage, purchased onion at the rate of ` 8 per kg and did not make the farmers suffered losses. Mong, Tuar etc were purchased at over Rs 1,500 above the market rate. He further mentioned that the government has complied with its commitment for not to make the farmers sell their produces at low prices, on which an amount of `1,000 crore has been spent by the government.

Benefit of the scheme will be derived by only those farmers who get themselves registered at the portal of the scheme till October 15. He further informed that registration is taking place in gram sabhas.
