Direct Subsidy Scheme Phase III for fertilizer by March 2013




In near future, fertilizer subsidy will be directly credited into the farmers banks account. The Department of Fertilizes (DOF) is preparing a detailed project report (DPR) on Phase III fertilizer subsidy scheme and set a target date to complete it as March 2013.

This Phase III fertilizer subsidy Scheme would be sub-divided into three stages :-

1. Stage A - Information availability on sale of fertilizer to individual farmers and subsequent release of subsidy to manufacturer.

2. Stage B - Direct Transfer of Subsidy to all farmers/beneficiaries.

3. Stage C - Targeted subsidy transfer to eligible farmers on the basis of land holding and other entitlement criteria.
