The coastline of Gujarat is the largest in the country. Its 1600 km long sea border touches about 15 districts of the state. The population of people who make a living by fishing in this coastal area is very high. The business of sea fishing and its export has developed quite a lot here. The contribution of Gujarat government in this is huge. Due to the schemes launched by him, people are getting financial upliftment and they are also becoming financially capable and strong.


Special provision in the budget for relief in diesel prices
According to the provision made by the Bhupendra Patel government of Gujarat in the last budget, a provision of Rs 880 crore has been made for fisheries. In this, an amount of Rs 230 crore has been specially allocated to give relief in diesel prices to fishermen. Diesel is the mainstay as fuel for fishing boats and the Bhupendra Patel government has understood this need of the fishermen very well.

Gujarat government is taking every step to help fishermen
This High Speed ​​Diesel VAT Rahat is being run under the Sagar Khedu Sarvangi Vikas Yojana to reduce the financial burden of the fishermen in the state. There is a provision to increase the diesel limit by 2,000 liters for each level of concessional rate available to fishermen. This significantly reduces the burden on the fishermen to spend on fuel used in fishing boats. On the other hand, the help given to fishermen under the Kerosene Subsidy Scheme has also been increased from Rs 25 per liter to Rs 50 per litre. Along with this, its limit has also been increased to 1500 liters per year. This scheme of the state government is providing direct financial benefits to more than 50 thousand fishermen families.

Suraj Solanki of Bhavnagar told about this,

Relief in diesel subsidy has been planned in the state in the last budget, which has been increased to 2000 liters. This relief is proving to be a big help for the people associated with the fishing business amid rising fuel prices.

The Chief Minister of the state Bhupendra Patel, anyway, constantly strives for the welfare of the people of Gujarat. This is the reason that through the Sagar Khedu Sarvangi Vikas Yojana, the welfare of thousands of families living near the beaches in the state is also being ensured and their economic progress is also being ensured. One of the various welfare financial assistance schemes being run by the state government, this High Speed ​​Diesel VAT Relief Scheme is playing a big role in improving the lives of fishermen especially.
