Aadhaar enabled fertilizer distribution system (AeFDS)

(भारत सरकार द्वारा आधार आधारित ऑनलाइन उर्वरक वितरण प्रणाली शुरू करने हेतु राजस्थान में  पाली जिले को मॉडल जिले के तौर पर चुना है)

A Strategy paper on “Soil Health Mapping and Direct Benefit Transfer of Fertilizer Subsidy” from Director General, ICRISAT. It was proposed for the creation of a national database of eligible beneficiaries with information on land holding and type of crop cultivated on the land for DBT.

After the announcement of Hon'ble Finance Ministers budget speech, 2016-17 regarding the proposal to introduce DBT on pilot basis for fertilizer in a few districts across the country with a view to improving the quality of service delivery to the farmers, Department of Fertilizers has already initiated the process to pilot the proposal in few select districts to create robust database that would capture the retailer's sales and buyer details (Demographic data, Bank account, Aadhaar number, Land records etc., whichever is available).

List of pilot districts

The Pilot project would run in 16 districts from Oct 2016 onwards.
