rupala will start an awareness campaign to connect fishermen with kcc
Rupala said at an event organized on World Fisheries Day in Bhubaneswar, Odisha that the central government would soon start an awareness campaign among fishermen. Its purpose is to familiarize them with the benefits associated with Kisan Credit Card.
In the budget of the year 2018-19, the government had announced to include cattle farmers and fishermen under the ambit of Kisan Credit Card. Through this it was decided to give them financial support.
Rupala said that there is immense potential for growth in the fisheries sector and the central government is giving all necessary help to increase the exports of this sector to one lakh crore rupees by the year 2024-25. He said that the State Governments should also try to promote this sector by getting inspired from each other.
He said that there is a need to emphasize on eco-friendly fishing so that it can be kept sustainable as consumption increases.
