Government officials of your State will include you in the scheme based on whether your name appears in the land ownership records or not.

Responsibility of identifying the landholder farmer family eligible for benefit under the scheme shall be of the State/UT Government. The existing land-ownership record in the concerned States/UTs will be used for the identification of beneficiaries. Those whose names appear in land records as on 01.02.2019 shall be eligible for the benefit. If a Landholder Farmer Family (LFF) has land parcels spread across different village/revenue records, then the land will be pooled for determining the benefit.

The details of farmers are being maintained by the States/UTs either in electronic form or in manual register. Further, State/UT Governments would also expedite the progress of digitization of the land records and linking the same with Aadhaar as well as bank details of the beneficiaries.

Rhytu Bharosa scheme would be implemented from October 15 2019. We will update the details here as soon as the application process is announced.
