JAMMU, July 13: National Bank for Agriculture & Rural Development (NABARD) provided Rs 462 crore in 2019-20 for execution of 139 projects in Jammu & Kashmir.
In the midst of ongoing pandemic, NABARD has stepped into its 39th year of formation on July 12, 2020, even as it has made path breaking contribution in the development of the UT of J&K and Ladakh in last few years. The National bank has also witnessed a change of guard in J&K with R K Srivastava having taken over as Chief General Manager.
NABARD sanctioned Rs.462 crore for execution of 139 projects during 2019-20. As on 31 March 2020, cumulatively 3785 projects are sanctioned with RIDF loan of Rs 6821.27 crore. These projects will cover 15537 km of road length, 12814 meter of bridge length, construction of 1400 school rooms, 80 veterinary hospitals etc. Around population of 15 lakh benefitted from Water Supply Scheme(WSS) projects.
NABARD also supported the banks operating in UT with refinance assistance of Rs.152 crore during 2019-20 for meeting the crop loan requirements and agri-term loan activity like dairy, poultry, sheep husbandry. J&K Gramin Bank was our major partner.
NABARD has promoted 17 Farmer Producer Organizations (FPO)s since the inception of FPO concept in the UTs of J&K and Ladakh benefitting 2300 farmers. The FPO platform provides for aggregation of produce by small farmers and achieving economies of scale.

With a view to address the problem of water shortage, two Spring-shed based watershed projects were sanctioned, one each in the UTs of J&K and Ladakh.
