Department of Fisheries has successfully inaugurated the integration of the Kisan Credit Card (KCC) Fisheries scheme onto the JanSamarth Portal. This initiative promises to transform access to credit facilities for fishers, fish farmers, and stakeholders across the nation. The virtual inauguration ceremony, graced by esteemed dignitaries, marked a significant milestone in the digitalization of the credit system within the fisheries sector.

During the ceremony, Sagar Mehra, Joint Secretary of the Department of Fisheries, underscored the government's relentless efforts to support the digitalization of the credit system. He emphasized the transformative impact of integrating the KCC Fisheries scheme onto the JanSamarth Portal, highlighting its role in facilitating seamless access to institutional credit facilities. This move is ready to promote the inclusive growth of the fisheries industry by breaking down barriers to financial access.

The integration of the KCC Fisheries scheme onto the JanSamarth Portal signifies an important leap towards providing a digital platform for fish farmers and stakeholders in the fisheries sector. This initiative aims to streamline processes, digitize workflows, and provide efficient loan management services. By doing so, it ensures enhanced accessibility and transparency for beneficiaries, ultimately contributing to the sustainable growth of the fisheries industry.

The Department of Fisheries made extensive efforts to raise awareness about the KCC Fisheries scheme. This concerted effort has resulted in the issuance of over 3,01,309 KCC cards to beneficiaries engaged in fisheries and aquaculture activities nationwide. Such proactive measures underscore the government's commitment to empowering fishers and fish farmers, fostering their socio-economic development, and promoting the overall growth of the fisheries industry.

The integration of the KCC Fisheries scheme onto the JanSamarth Portal signs a new era of efficiency, transparency, and inclusivity in the fisheries sector. Fishers and fish farmers across the country can now easily apply for their KCC loans and manage their loan accounts online. This digital platform not only simplifies processes but also ensures greater financial inclusion, enabling stakeholders to harness the full potential of credit facilities for the sustainable development of the fisheries industry.

This initiative holds the promise of unlocking new opportunities, driving economic growth, and improving livelihoods for millions engaged in fisheries and aquaculture activities nationwide.
