Haryana’s Minister urges people to install biogas plants for domestic use

Haryana’s Minister of Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare, Kanwar Pal, has encouraged the state’s people to install biogas plants for domestic purposes. He emphasized that this initiative would not only lower household expenses but also contribute to combating climate change.

Kanwar Pal highlighted the “New National Biogas and Organic Manure Programme,” which facilitates the installation of family-sized biogas plants across the state. These plants are established under the “National Biogas Development Project,” with the Government of India extending support through staff assistance, subsidies, training courses, and grants for demonstrating biogas installations. Additionally, the scheme covers the repair, maintenance, and upkeep of existing biogas plants.

Under this program, beneficiaries receive financial aid from the central government. Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe recipients are eligible for assistance ranging from Rs. 17,000 to Rs. 29,250, depending on the size of the biogas plant, while general category beneficiaries receive assistance ranging from Rs. 9,800 to Rs. 22,750.

The primary objective of the “New National Biogas and Organic Manure Programme” is to address the demand for organic manure and clean cooking fuel in rural and semi-urban areas. This initiative aims to enhance sanitation by connecting sanitary toilets to biogas plants using animal dung.

Furthermore, Kanwar Pal emphasized that this program would alleviate the burden on women by reducing their workload, allowing them more time for other livelihood activities. He also noted that the initiative would produce organic manure, thereby reducing reliance on chemical fertilizers like urea.

Expressing concerns about global warming, Kanwar Pal highlighted the program’s role in mitigating climate change by curbing the emission of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane into the atmosphere.
