ARYA which stands for ‘Attracting Rural Youth in Agriculture’ is a new scheme being planned by the state government of Jharkhand to attract rural youth in agriculture. The scheme will be launched by the Chief Minister Raghubar Das soon.
Under the scheme, Agriculture Technology Management and Training (ATMA) will provide the training to the rural youth. From each village, two people will be selected and trained on how to make the proper use of barren and uncultivated land and inspired to grow pulses.

In India, there is a lot of concern about engaging youth in agriculture to increase its productivity and efficiency. Unfortunately, the young generation is not interested in continuing in agriculture because they do not see much prospect in the future of agriculture. Therefore it becomes a compulsion to attract them towards this field which will be fulfilled through this scheme.
