Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday launched a financing facility of ₹ 1 lakh crore under the Agri-Infra Fund. This financing facility of ₹ 1 lakh crore will help create post harvest infrastructure in villages and generate jobs. He also asserted that the country does not face problems in farm production but in post-harvest losses and therefore efforts are being made to strengthen post harvest infrastructure facilities and ensure better income for farmers. PM Modi launched the fund through a video conference on the auspicious occasion of Balram Jayanthi. Balram Jayanthi is a day when farmers worship ploughs. Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar and farmers from some states also participated in the video conference.
