Tamizhaga Vivasayeegal Sangam has urged the Union and State Governments to write off agriculture loans. At its monthly meeting held in January, it has urged the State Government to supply fodder at subsidised cost as there was shortage of fodder because of drought.
It has asked the Government to publish online the monthly cultivation data, as ascertained by the Agriculture and Revenue Departments so that it would bring out the actual figure. Likewise, the Association wants the Government to revisit the subsidy fixed for the drip irrigation.
The farmers’ association has also sought fixing guideline value for agriculture lands at a different rate until cultivation was on and not treat them as housing plots. Government should instruct sub registrars in this regard.
