Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Saur Sujala Yojana that would provide solar powered
irrigation pumps to farmers at a subsidized price. It was launched in Chhattisgarh as part of the state’s
16th foundation day celebrations. With this Chhattisgarh becomes the first state to implement the
scheme. Key Facts Under the scheme, solar powered irrigation pumps of 3HP and 5HP capacity will
be distributed to the farmers. The beneficiaries would get the pumps at the subsidised price. It is
mainly aimed to give priority to those areas where electricity has not reached, so that farmers can 
utilize them in irrigation and agriculture. Around 51,000 farmers would be benefitted in the state with
the launch of the scheme by 2018. Earlier, PM Narendra Modi had dedicated the Jungle Safari in Naya
Raipur. It is claimed to be the biggest man-made safari in Asia. The safari is spread across 320
hectares of area.
