WHY THIS PROGRAMME FOR?
India begin an agrarian society has, 12.5 crore farmer households of which over 85% are small and marginal farmers with land holdings of less than 2 hectares. Small landholding, and fund constrains the farmers ability in procuring inputs like seeds and fertilizers at reasonable prices, access to technology, etc. As a result, majority of the small producers are unable to realize optimal value from their farming operations and make economic progress. Thus, Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs) has been considered as one of the ways to overcome the challenges faced by the small and marginal farmers. This has enabled the farmers to access better markets (inputs and output), financial services, input supply services, market services, technical and networking services.Promotion of FPOs also assist Govt. of India in achieving the initiative of doubling farm income by 2022.
FPO is a legal entity formed by primary producers, viz. Small and marginal farmers, which is directly engaged in agriculture and allied activity as crop production, dairy, fishery, animal husbandry, poultry, bee-keeping and sericulture etc. A FPO can be a producer company, a cooperative society or any other legal form, which provides for sharing of profits/benefits among the members. Presently, around 5000 FPOs are in existence in the country, which were formed under various initiatives of the Govt. of India (including SFAC), State Governments, NABARD and other organizations over the last 8-10 years. Of these, around 3200 FPOs are registered as Producer Companies and the remaining as Cooperatives/ Societies, etc. These FPOs are financially supported by RashtriyaKrishiVikasYojana (RKVY), Equity Grant and Credit Guarantee Fund Scheme by Small Farmers Agribusiness Consortium (SFAC), Producers Organizations Development Fund (PODF) in NABARD and PRODUCE fund of Government of India etc.
Majority of these FPOs are in early stage of their operations with shareholder membership ranging from 100 to over 1000 farmers and require not only technical handholding but also adequate credit, capital and infrastructure facilities including market linkages for sustaining their business operations. Hence, there is a potential avenue for the financial institutions for financing the FPOs and increase their priority sector advance portfolio with minimal default risk.
Therefore, the present programme highlights the current scenario of FPOs in India, there operations and emphasized the role of bank required at various stages of FPO development.
