Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh launched a portal ENSURE- National Livestock Mission-EDEG developed by National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) and operated under the Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying & Fisheries Tuesday. On this occasion, he informed that the National Livestock Mission has been conceived by Modi government for the sustainable development of the livestock sector. Under the Mission’s component called Entrepreneurship Development and Employment Generation (EDEG), subsidy payment for activities related to poultry, small ruminants, pigs among others through Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) goes directly to the beneficiary’s account.

In order to make it better, simpler and transparent, NABARD has developed an online portal “ENSURE” so that the information related to beneficiary and processing of application can be made readily available.

Singh added that under the new process, controlling officer/branch manager of the bank, after scrutinising and sanctioning of proposal, uploads the subsidy claims in the portal. The subsidy will be approved within 30 days from the date of sanction of loan. Earlier, even after the loan approval, subsidy took a long time to reach the beneficiary’s account. Through this process, the flow of information/ funds will also be quicker and more accountable. The burden of extra interest due to delay in the disbursal of the subsidy would now be reduced after the launch of the portal. Access from the portal will also be on real-time basis and list of beneficiaries can be easily prepared.
