Surya Raitha Scheme Karnataka  – The Karnataka Government has launched the Karnataka Suryan Rath Yojana to provide solar powered pump sets to the farmers   .

These solar pumps have the ability to pump more water than the current IP pump set, which is about 1.5 times higher than the usual pumps. Apart from this, these pumps will reduce the supply of approximately 1 / 3rd of the total energy generated from the electricity grid (assembly).

The Karnataka  Suryan Rath Yojana has been launched to help the farmers in irrigation purposes, because the use of these solar pumps does not have to be dependent on their IP sets at night time. The use of these solar pumps can prevent the waste of electricity and water to a great extent. The Karnataka Government will start with the funds collected by the farmers, the combination of investment, center and state government for this scheme. Subsidy and soft loan will be taken from the Bangalore Electric Supply Company (BESCOM).

Karnataka  Suryan Rath BSECOM Initiatives

The loan amount will be corrected through the cost of additional energy exported in the BESCOM grid. After recovery of loan amount, BESCOM will deposit additional amount in farmers bank account. The repayment period of the loan amount should be around 12 to 14 years, because the amount of electricity generated and its utility will be charged on the basis of income.

 Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission (KERC) will fix tariff plans and thereby deposit net meter revenue in escrow account. The government will use this tariff to provide some amount to society for debt repayment, production based incentives and for maintenance.

Karnataka Surya Raitha Scheme BSECOM

Under this scheme, BSECOM will do the following: –
  • Construction of co-operative societies for farmers.
  • After this, the BSECOM channel will also provide subsidy.
  • Providing easy credit to farmers.
  • Signing of Power Purchase Agreement for a period of 25 years.
  • Ensure proper power supply for pump set.

Farmers have to provide shade-free land for successfully establishing such systems. Apart from this, farmers have to protect these installed solar photovoltaic (PV) systems.

Karnataka Suryan Rath Yojana – The Karnataka Government will construct “Harobelay Surya Rath Vidyutchukki Balkeedara Sangha Regular Society” for successful implementation of this big project. The primary function of this society is to distribute this amount among the farmers by taking the amount from BESCOM.

Benefits of Surya Raitha Scheme

Farmers can get the following benefits: –

  • Increase in agricultural production
  • Stable and adequate power supply during the day
  • Fixed source of income for farmers even in adverse climatic conditions.
