India is the second largest producer of vegetables in the world and accounts for about 15 per cent of the world’s production of vegetables. In Haryana, vegetables are grown over an area of 447 thousand hectares with production of 7.16 MT and contribute about 3.90 percent in country’s vegetable production. Vegetables being perishable in nature, farmers had to sell their products at the harvest time when the prices are minimal resulting in a very low return for their produced products. To overcome the risks and to give right price of vegetables to its growers, Haryana government has launched Bhavanter Bharpai Yojna (BBY) in January, 2018. The present study was undertaken to know the awareness and perception of vegetable growers about BBY in Haryana. The study was conducted in randomly selected Hisar and Fatehabad districts of Haryana. A sample size of 80 vegetable growers was selected for present study. The study reveals that respondents have 45.66 per cent awareness about BBY. Average mean score of 6.85 indicated that respondents had not sufficient awareness about BBY. Most of the respondents (more than 60 %) were not aware about registration process, area verification, sale period, procedure of claiming benefit under BBY. The data regarding vegetable growers perception reveals that 86.25 per cent respondents agree with the statement that ‘BBY is not much beneficial in the present scenario of vegetable prices (WMS=0.86) followed by the statement ‘BBY is not effective without awareness (WMS=0.85)’, BBY is not beneficial for farmers as daily price of vegetables are not fixed on the basis of local Mandis (WMS=0.84), Simplification of process is required for BBY effectiveness( WMS=0.83), On line registration of BBY is a big hurdle for less educated/ illiterate farmers(WMS=0.81) were ranked First, second, third, fourth & fifth respectively. From above results, it can be concluded that BBY can be more effective if the rates of the crops included in the schemes should be increased and simplify the registration process under BBY as perceived by the respondents.
