Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Friday ordered the state’s agriculture department to provide financial assistance to small and marginal farmers who had not burnt any paddy straw.
The chief minister also ordered stringent action against violators of the ban on stubble burning, in compliance with the apex court’s directives on penalization of such farmers, according to an official statement issued here.
Singh chaired a high-level meeting to discuss the implications of the Supreme Court orders, which would put an additional burden on the cash strapped state, which was already reeling under fiscal problems in the GST regime.
The meeting was informed that more than 900 FIRs had so far been registered against erring farmers, mostly in Muktsar and Bathinda, with some cases reported in Sangrur.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday ordered the governments of Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh to give an incentive of Rs 100 per quintal within 7 days to small and marginal farmers who have not burnt crop stubble. The burning of crop residue in the three states is stated to be responsible for 44 per cent of the air pollution in the Delhi-National Capital Region (NCR).
