He ascribed three categories of beneficiary seekers (A) individual farmers (B) SHGs and (C) FPOs, who are deemed eligible to apply.

He also emphasized on selecting genuine beneficiaries, especially marginalized farmers, unemployed youths and women, and sought cooperation from bankers for credit facilities to farmers.
