Bhubaneswar: The State Government has decided to drop ineligible beneficiaries under the KALIA scheme. Agriculture Secretary Saurabh Garg said already the names and list of 51 lakh farmers, who have received benefits under the scheme, have been uploaded on the website, out of which 37 lakh are small and marginal farmers while the remaining 14 lakh are landless farmers.
The list of the beneficiaries has been put up on the walls of each panchayat so as to weed out fake beneficiaries. Those, who voluntarily want to their names to be dropped from the KALIA beneficiary list, can do so by filing up a form.
One can download the form from the official website-www.Kalia.co.in and submit it before the panchayat level nodal officer between August 6 and August 14. They also need to apply before concerned bank managers to refund the assistance which they had received under the KALIA scheme.
Official sources said the left out beneficiaries, who were not included under the KALIA scheme, can now apply for enrolling themselves under the scheme.
He further informed that at present the Government has received nearly one crore applications while efforts are on to identify genuine beneficiaries and remove fake ones. Moreover, committees have been formed at panchayat, block and district levels for the same, Garg added.
