This financial support from government has boosted the morale of farmers and they are working in their farms with renewed enthusiasm. Under Godhan Nyay Yojana, cattle ranchers and villagers have been paid nearly Rs 21 crore against dung procurement.  New Government has taken several measures for economic growth such as waiving off farmers’ loans, procuring paddy at Rs 2500 per quintal, irrigation tax waiver etc. This is the reason why Chhattisgarh’s economy never had to shut down.
