His dream was that he will have a well dug in his farm and take two crops in the year like other farmers through the irrigation facility. Due to his land being unirrigated, he could take only one crop that of Kharif. Though he wanted to have a well dug in field, his economic condition did not allow it until one day his cherished dream was fulfilled through a government scheme. This is the tale of scheduled caste farmer Prahlad son of Ramlal Meghwal, a resident of Kanakhera, 11 kilometres away from the Neemuch district headquarters.
The scheme, which has helped Prahlad fulfil his dream is none other than Kapildhara Yojana. He got the information about the scheme from Panchayat and applied for the same. In turn, the village Panchayat sanctioned Rs 1.27 lakh to Prahlad Meghwal for digging of well in his 1.02 hectare field. He and his wife also helped in the digging work of the well for which they were also paid 100 days’ wages by the village Panchayat. Fortunately enough for Prahlad, the well dug in his field carried adequate water. For the last two years, Prahlad is taking two crops every year due to irrigation facility provided by the well dug under Kapildhara Yojana. This has strengthened his economic condition. Prahlad says that due to Kapildhara Yojana, agriculture has indeed become profitable for him.
