New Delhi: The government has released Rs 332.87 crore to seven States for extending green revolution to east India in the current financial year.

According to government official sources, Rs 400 crore have been earmarked for this sub-scheme under Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY) for this fiscal, of which as on 20th January 2012, Rs 332.87 crore has been released.

“The agricultural productivity in this region is comparatively low in spite of the adequate availability of natural resources required for higher production,” the statement said.

The programme targets improvement in the rice based cropping system in the selected States.
 
Eastern India with 2-3 times more rainfall compared to the Northwest States, unexploited good quality ground water aquifers, and vast resources of social capital have relative advantage for sustainable production of rice, banana, sugarcane and aquaculture.
 
The scheme is aimed at increasing crop productivity of the region by intensive cultivation through promotion of recommended agricultural technologies and package of practices.
