by Nidhi Bhati

The central government is planning to launch an Aadhaar-based database in order to digitise all its farm-oriented schemes and to ensure that farmers are paid procurement prices directly. The database, to be completed by 30 June 2020, will have satellite imaging of individual farm land. In the first phase, the database will have details of 50 million farmers across nine states.
