Puri: The Land of Lord Jagannath, popularly referred to as KALIA, is all decked up for the grand event of Odisha Government's ‘KALIA’ scheme today. As announced earlier, 12.45 lakh beneficiaries of the first phase under the scheme will get their money credited directly to their respective bank accounts on January 26 while the scheme will be launched in Puri today by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.

Informing media, Odisha Cooperation Commissioner-cum-Secretary Krishan Kumar had said on Thursday, “Funds will be remitted through DBT to these 12.45 lakh farmers tomorrow soon after the launch made by Hon’ble Chief Minister at Puri.”

As over 2 lakh farmers from 314 blocks of Odisha are all set to visit the Malatipatpur for the scheme’s launch today, Central Range IG Police Soumendra Priyadarshi said, “We have made traffic and parking arrangements, along with safety measures at sea beach and Srimandir to ensure that any untoward incident is prevented. 50 platoons of police force along with 6-7 SP commandants and 250 officers have been deployed across the heritage town for today’s event.

It is notable to mention here that Krushak Assistance for Livelihood and Income Augmentation (KALIA), State Government's flagship scheme for farmers, has received widespread praise and appreciation. After a big debate on whether loan waivers are actually beneficial, the Centre too was considering to launch KALIA nationwide in a new avatar.
