    NFSM Commercial Crops

    Brief note on National Food Security Mission-Commercial Crops (Cotton, Jute and Sugarcane)

    The Government of India has approved Crop Development Programme on Cotton, Jute and Sugarcane for enhancing the production and productivity under National Food Security Mission- Commercial Crops (NFSM-CC) w.e.f. 2014-15. Under this Scheme thrust has been given on transfer of technology through frontline demonstrations and training in order to extend benefits to the farmers. From, 2015-16, in view of increased devolution to the States on account of implementation of recommendations of 14th Finance Commission, NFSM is being implemented on sharing basis between Government of India and States on 60:40 basis for general category states & 90:10 basis for North East & hilly states. However, the Central Agencies are funded 100% by GOI. Under the NFSM-CC, an allocation of Rs.4366.91 lakh has been made for 2016-17. This includes Rs.4100.11 lakh (Rs.1253.50 lakh for Sugarcane, Rs. 1510.99 lakh for Cotton & Rs. 1335.62 lakh for Jute) for States with sharing pattern of 60:40 (General State) and 90:10 (Hilly/NE States) between Centre and States and Rs. 266.80 lakh for Central Agencies with 100% funding by Centre.
