Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY)

RKVY- “eligibility criteria” to be de-linked for Special Category States like Tripura.
Tripura is one of the Special Category States having very limited resource base. As the allocation under RKVY is linked to increased allocation by the State for Agri. and allied sectors under State Plan both in percentage terms and in absolute terms, the State is likely to suffer as it would not be able to make increased investments in the light of the resource crunch being faced by the State. This is more acute after the 13th Finance Commission recommendations, where the State Government has been awarded less allocation than that of the requirement.

According to the existing norms of the Planning Commission, one of the eligibility criteria for allocation of RKVY funds have been linked with the increase in the total Plan expenditure in Agriculture And Allied Sectors in the previous year over the year prior to that year, which has badly affected the states like Tripura. Fluctuation/uncertainty in allotment of RKVY funds mainly due to the imposition of “eligibility criteria” has been generated as one of the barriers in aiming a continuous development Plan for the Primary Sector.

There should not be a common eligibility conditions for all the states. Planning Commission may consider de-linking the above condition for allocating the funds under RKVY for the Special Category States like Tripura (as it is done in case of NFSM – States and Green Revolution for Eastern India Programme).
