Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana

When started

Launched on 29th May, 2007

Highlights of the scheme

  • It is a State Plan scheme.
  • The eligibility of a state for the RKVY is contingent upon the state maintaining or increasing the State Plan expenditure for Agricultural and Allied sectors.
  • The base line expenditure is determined based on the average expenditure incurred by the State Government during the three years prior to the previous year.
  • The preparation of the district and State Agriculture Plans is mandatory.
  • The scheme encourages convergence with other programmes such as MGNREGA.
  • The pattern of funding is 100% Central Government Grant.
  • If the state lowers its investment in the subsequent years, and goes out of the RKVY basket, then the balance resources for completing the projects already commenced would have to be committed by the states.
