Unleashing the Potential of PM-KUSUM

26 Aug 2021   |   1500–1630 hrs IST

PM-KUSUM is a flagship scheme of the Government of India to solarise Indian farms. As we celebrate the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, we discuss the scheme's potential to transform Indian agriculture by improving irrigation access and increasing farmers income.

This session will bring together key stakeholders to reflect on the scheme’s progress, discuss key challenges that must be addressed to fast-track its implementation, learn about the best practices from the states, and identify ways to achieve the scheme’s objectives — unlocking incomes for millions of farmers.
