This project will be not only helpful for self-employment opportunities but also accelerate economic growth.
Through this scheme, the participants will get an opportunity to earn around Rs 20,000 monthly for 25 years for a 100 kW to be installed in three bighas of land, and Rs 40,000 and rupees one lakh per month for the projects with a capacity of 200 kW and 500 kW, to be set up in five and ten bighas of land respectively.
Under this scheme, beneficiaries are only required to provide a 10 percent security deposit, while the government will assist in securing a 70 percent bank loan and provide 30 percent equity.
Additionally, the Cabinet has sanctioned the commencement of ‘Sarkar Gaon Ke Dwar’ from January 8th, extending until February 12th, where beneficiaries of government programs will engage in interactions at village clusters across the entire state.
