INVESTMENT & PROFIT ANALYSIS:
Plan implementation on 2 lac hectares of
cultivable land: (crop example is wheat)
Productionbefore implementation=560000 tonnes (2.8 tonnes/hectare)
(average in India)
Production after implementation=800000 tonnes (4 tonnes/ hectare)
Share of farmers= ₹ 756 Cr. (560000 tonnes* ₹ 13500/tonne)
(Share accordingto previousproduction as farmers are not investing money)
Totalinvestmentincludingexpenses on corporation= ₹ 250 Cr. (assumed)
Earningfrom sell to PDS= ₹ 68.32 Cr. (112000tonnes* ₹6100/tonne)
(only 20% of previousproductionis required for PDS & sell will be at rate fixed
government i.e. ₹ 6100/tonne for wheat)
Earningfrom sell to market= ₹ 997.6 Cr. (688000tonnes* ₹ 14500/tonne)
