Posted On: 07 DEC 2021 5:27PM by PIB Delhi

The Government is implementing National Food Security Mission (NFSM), a centrally sponsored scheme, launched in 2007-08. The Mission aims at increasing production of rice, wheat, pulses, coarse cereals and nutri-cereals through area expansion and productivity enhancement in the identified districts of the country; improving soil fertility, farm level productivity besides, transfer of technology through demonstrations and trainings, incentives on critical inputs like quality seeds, water saving devices, farm equipments and machinery etc.

The targets and achievements for the production of crops under NFSM during last 5 years are at Annexure-I

The state-wise release of funds under NFSM is enclosed at Annexure-II

The National Food Security Mission (NFSM) Programme on pulses is being implemented in identified districts of 28 States and 2 Union Territories (UTs) viz., Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh in the Country. However, for other crops the selection of the districts is based on area under crop and productivity of the district as per criteria approved under NFSM.

In order to encourage water use efficiency, assistance is being provided to the farmers for purchase of pump sets, water carrying pipes, sprinkler sets and mobile rain gun through the State Governments and Union Territories (UTs) under NFSM. The Government is implementing Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana (PMKSY) with the objective to enhance physical access of water and expand cultivable area under assured irrigation, improve on-farm water use efficiency, introduce sustainable water conservation practices etc.
