Correct Answer - Option 1 : To incentivise the states to increase public investment in agriculture and allied sectors.

The correct answer is To incentivise the states to increase public investment in agriculture and allied sectors.

  • Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana:
    • It was launched in 2007-08.
    • Its main aim is to provide support to agriculture and its allied sectors.
    • It provides considerable flexibility and autonomy to states in planning and executing programmes for incentivizing investment in agriculture and allied sectors. 
    • It is a centrally sponsored scheme.
    • States initiate the process of decentralized planning for agriculture and allied sectors through the preparation of District Agriculture Plans (DAPs) and State Agriculture Plan (SAP) based on agro-climatic conditions, availability of appropriate technology and natural resources to ensure accommodation of local needs, cropping pattern, priorities etc.
    • In 2017 this scheme was changed to Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana- Remunerative Approaches for Agriculture and Allied sector Rejuvenation (RKVY-RAFTAAR).
    • RKVY-RAFTAAR funds would be provided to the States as 60:40 grants between Centre and States (90:10 for the North Eastern States and the Himalayan States).
    • The scheme will incentivize States in enhancing more allocation to Agriculture and Allied Sectors. Hence, option 1 is correct
