Paddy Collectives

Establishment of 65 new paddy collectives in the state focusing on the strengthening of marginal paddy farmers. Due to various reasons, paddy production is decreasing in our state. This program will be a support to the women farmers of Kudumbashree in paddy production, processing and marketing area. Paddy collective fund can be transferred to existing collectives for enhancing their activities and can be given to the new ones also. Value addition of paddy, its branding, marketing etc are also included in this program. PCF can be given to the newly formed collectives as well as already established ones. But the amount wants to be repaid within 6 months to the CDS itself.
