Farmers demand simplification of loan procedures for commercializing agriculture

The website of BPD Unit at Birsa Agricultural University, www.bpdbauranchi.org, was launched by honourable minister for agriculture and sugarcane development, Government of Jharkhand, Sh. Satyanand Jha Batul in the BPD unit in the presence of Vice Chancellor Dr. N. N Singh, Director research Dr. B. N Singh and budding entrepreneurs in the agribusiness sector on 3rd February, 2011 at BAU. The BPD Unit was established on 30th March 2010 in BAU as a component of the National Agriculture Innovation Project of the Indian Council for Agricultural Research.

Honourable minister interacted with the entrepreneurs who are taking assistance from the BPD Unit for starting their venture in the form of business consultancy and market linkage assistance. Mr. Pratap Narayan Singh from Siladih Fruit and Vegetable cooperative society will take support of BPD Unit for establishing a dal mill in the region. Mr. Somvit Maji is enrolled in BPD Unit for support in setting up the largest integrated project on poultry farming in Jharkhand under Lucky Charm Poultry Pvt. Ltd.

Honourable Minister also met Ms. Paulina Kujur, who has taken training from BPD unit for establishing unit on Ragi cookies and has started production at household level. Another group of farmers who have registered Benasul Seed Village after receiving training from BPD Unit was also present. The minister encouraged the budding entrepreneurs in their endeavours and heard out the problems they were facing. The farmers pointed out to the minister that the car loan and housing loans are made available within a day by the banks, however when a farmer goes to a bank he has to go to too many departments to get the required certificates for taking a meager loan. Whether it is the non encumbrance certificate, no objection certificate from panchayat or municipality or non disputed property certificate, the farmers have to run from pillar to post to arrange all required documents. 

t is the same for in the case of availing subsidies from the department. They requested for simplification of procedures for agri-sector loans. Even as every now and then news papers report of special interest rates for priority sectors and loans without collateral, the situation on the ground seems far from such promises. Since its inception BPD Unit has sensitized about 130 farmers for taking up agribusiness ventures through means of trainings and workshops on seed production, hitech horticulture, Poultry , piggery fishery enterprises etc. The chief executive officer of BPD Unit is Ms. Kiran Narayanan; other team members include  Mr. Anand Singh, Mr. Sandeep Thakur and Mr. Badri Narayan Mishra. They are making all efforts to ensure that the farmers get a one stop solution for all information related to agribusiness opportunities at one place in the BPD Unit for contributing in the agribusiness sector in Jharkhand.
