PM Kusum Scheme 2021 Parts
The various parts of Kusum Scheme 2021 are as follows:-
- Solar Pumps Distribution – In Kusum Yojana, the power department in association with departments of the central govt. are going to work towards the successful distribution of solar powered pumps.
- Construction of Solar Power Factory – This includes the construction of solar power plants which would have a capacity to produce significant amount of power.
- Setting up tubewells – Kusum scheme includes setting up of tubewells which are also going to generate certain amount of power.
- Modernization of present Pumps – Only the production of power is not one of the aim of this Kusum Scheme 2021. The final component of Kusum scheme deals with the modernization of pumps which are currently in use and to replace old pumps by solar pumps.
In addition, banks would also provide 30% extra of total expenses as bank loans to farmers. Now the farmers would only have to spend the upfront cost and is around 10% of total cost to set up these solar projects.
Govt. Expands Kusum Scheme (Phase 2)
With PM Kusum scheme, the country will not only get rid of diesel-powered irrigation pumps, but it will also provide an opportunity to farmers to earn extra money. Under the Kusum Yojana scheme, farmers running solar pumps with solar energy will be able to sell their power back to the power distribution units of the states and earn extra profit from it. Although this scheme was implemented earlier, the Renewal Ministry under the Central Government has set a target to expand it to 2021-22 and 2022-23.
The central government believes that the Kusum Yojna scheme can play an important role in doubling the income of farmers. This will reduce the irrigation cost of farmers and on the other hand, it will also open the way for additional income for farmers. The solar-powered pump will be connected to the local grid. Farmers will be able to sell more power to the grid.
Kisan Urja Suraksha Evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan (Kusum) Scheme Approved by CCEA
Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs has approved the launch of Kisan Urja Suraksha Evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan. Kusum Scheme 2021 will provide financial and water security to the farmers. Kusum Solar Pump Yojana online application form available at kusum.online. Kusum Yojana has 3 components namely A, B & C which are going to be implemented to provide solar powered agriculture pumps.
All 3 components combined, Kusum scheme aims to add a solar capacity of 25,750 MW by FY 2022. Kisan Urja Suraksha Evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan is also going to generate employment opportunities directly and will also increase the self employment opportunities.
Kisan Urja Suraksha Evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan – Kusum Scheme Components
The proposed Kisan Urja Suraksha Evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan (Kusum scheme) will consist of three components:-
Component A – 10,000 MW of Decentralized Ground Mounted Grid Connected Renewable Power Plants. This component will be implemented on pilot mode for 1000 MW capacity. Under component A, renewable power plants of 500 KW to 2 MW capacity would be setup by individual farmers / cooperatives / panchayats /farmer producer organisations (FPO) on their barren or cultivable lands. The remaining power generated is going to be purchased by the DISCOMs at feed in tariffs determined by respective SERC. Kusum Scheme is going to provide a stable and continuous source of income to the rural land owners. Moreover, DISCOMs will get Performance Based Incentives @ Rs. 0.40 per unit for 5 years.
Component B – Installation of 17.50 lakh standalone solar powered agriculture pumps. Under this component, individual farmers are going to be supported to install standalone solar pumps of capacity up to 7.5 Horse Power. People are also allowed to open Solar PV having capacity in kW which is equal to the pump capacity in HP.
Component C – Solarization of around 10 lakh grid-connected solar powered agricultural pumps. This component will be implemented on pilot mode for 1 lakh grid connected agriculture pumps. Under this component, all the individual farmers will be given support to solarise pumps of upto 7.5 HP capacity. Solar PV capacity upto 2 times of pump capacity in kW is allowed under Kusum Scheme. Farmers can then use generated energy to meet irrigation needs while the rest of the available energy would be sold to DISCOM. This scheme is going to create an avenue to provide extra income to farmers and for the states to meet their RPO targets.
Both the pilot projects for component A & B will be scale up on success of pilot run while component B would be implemented in full-fledged manner.
Kusum Yojana Implementation
In order to successfully implement component B & C of Kusum Yojana, govt. will provide central financial assistance (CFA) of 30% of benchmark cost or tender cost (whichever is lower). The state govt. will also provide 30% subsidy and the remaining 40% amount is to be borne by the farmer. For 30% investment amount by the farmer, bank finance facility will also remain available while the remaining 10% amount will have to be given by farmer from their pockets. The central govt. will provide 50% CFA for North Eastern States, Sikkim, Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Lakshadweep and A&N Islands.
Kusum Scheme is going to have a substantial impact on the environment as CO2 emissions would get reduced. All the 3 components in combined form would result in saving of around 27 million tonnes of CO2 emissions per year. Furthermore, the component B (standalone solar pumps) of Kusum Scheme will save 1.2 billion litres of diesel per annum along with associated savings in foreign exchange due to reduction of import of crude oil.
