Indore (Madhya Pradesh): The MP government has started giving subsidies for irrigation work through DBT. Last month, the subsidy amount given for irrigation was deposited in the accounts of 13 lakh farmers of Malwa and Nimar.

State Energy Minister Pradyuman Singh Tomar said that DBT is proving to be effective for transparency and providing timely information about the help being given to the farmers. This is also a very good step towards digitization.
