Subsidy on solar water pumps is a term that both farmers and the common man would like to learn about. But first, let’s learn about solar water pumping in India.
Solar water pump is a new technology water pumping system that is powered by solar energy. They are especially beneficial for India’s agricultural regions where grid access is limited and cost of fuels like diesel is high.

The initial investment in a solar pumping system may be higher compared to normal water pumps but it comes with numerous advantages. This is the main reason why small farmers can’t install solar water pumps in their fields.
To solve this financial problem of farmers, the government offers various subsidy schemes, with the goal of increasing farmers’ yield and income. So let’s learn in detail about these various subsidy schemes on solar water pumps in India.
#1. PM-KUSUM Yojana Scheme
Pradhan Mantri Kisan Urja Suraksha evam Utthan Mahabhiyan (PM-KUSUM) is an Indian central government-sponsored scheme led by MNRE. The PM-KUSUM scheme helps Indian farmers in installing solar pumps as well as solar power plants in India.
Under KUSUM yojana, you will have to bear only 10% of the total cost. The remaining 30% will be provided by the central government and 30% by the state government as solar pump subsidies. In that way, you’ll receive a total 60% subsidy on your solar water pump. The remaining 30% will be financed.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced the expansion of the PM KUSUM Scheme, which will provide funds to 20 lakh farmers to install standalone solar pumps. She said while presenting the budget for 2020-21, that 15 lakh farmers would be provided funds to set up grid-connected 15 lakh solar pumps.
#2. NABARD Subsidy Scheme
The National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development is an Indian bank that aims to provide overall possible benefits to small and needy farmers. NABARD offers subsidies for solar power plants and solar water pumps. If a farmer wants to install a solar power plant on his property, he will have to pay only 20% of the cost of the solar plant. And to pay the remaining 80%, NABARD offers loans.
Similarly, this bank is offering a loan for installing solar water pumps. The farmers must pay only 60% of the cost of installing a solar pump and the remaining 40% will be subsidized by NABARD. However, this 60% will also be financed by this bank. These low-interest loans are available to anyone. The interest rates will basically depend on RBI’s guideline.
#3. Pardarshi Kisan Seva Yojana-UP
The Uttar Pradesh government has launched the Pardarshi Kisan Seva Yojana. It is a subsidy scheme that provides financial assistance to farmers who want to install solar water pumps in their fields. Through this scheme the UP government aims to reduce irrigation costs and to provide uninterrupted irrigation facilities to farmers.
The solar water pump subsidy will be provided jointly by the central and state governments under this scheme/yojana. If a farmer installs a solar powered water pump under Pardarshi Kisan Seva Yojana, he or she will receive a subsidy approximately 90% of the total cost.
#4. Punjab Solar Pump Subsidy
When other state governments like Uttar Pradesh and Haryana are providing subsidies to the farmers, how can the Punjab government fall behind? To promote green energy, the Punjab government also launched a subsidy scheme for the farmers to install solar water pumps in the agriculture and irrigation sector.
The Punjab government will provide 75 percent of the total cost as Central Financial Assistance (CFA) to farmers who want to install solar water pumps in their fields under this scheme. It not only assists the farmer in installing an alternative irrigation source, but also helps in reducing carbon footprints in our environment.
#5. Mukhyamantri Solar Pump Yojana-MP
Madhya Pradesh has introduced and implemented the Mukhyamantri Solar Pump Yojana. This is a joint scheme of the central government i.e. Ministry of New and Renewable Energy and the government of Madhya Pradesh. The main objective of launching this scheme is to promote green energy overall in the state.
Under Mukhyamantri Solar Pump Yojana, the farmers are only required to pay 10% of the total cost of the project. The state government will sponsor or provide the remaining 90% of the project costs, with assistance from the central government (MNRE).
#6. Haryana Solar Pump Subsidy
Haryana is a state with a lot of agricultural land. And how can this happen if the Haryana government does not implement any farmer welfare schemes? The Haryana government has also launched a solar water pump subsidy scheme to help farmers in the state and maintain their best image.
Farmers in Haryana are only required to pay 10% of the total cost under the Haryana solar pump scheme. The remaining 90% will be paid jointly by the central and state governments. To get the subsidy, contact your state solar agencies before the installation.
#7. Saur Sinchayee Yojana-HP
The Cabinet Committee of Himachal Pradesh has implemented the Saur Sinchayee Yojana. An overall budget of Rs.224 crore is being provided to allot subsidies to the farmers who want to install solar water pumps in their fields. This scheme will cover around 90% of total cost. This 90% cost will be paid by the state government and the rest of 10% would be paid by the beneficiary (small or marginal farmer of HP) themselves.
The government of HP is also providing an 80 percent subsidy to medium and large farmers. In addition to all of these subsidies, the state government will provide 100 percent financial assistance to a group of small and marginal farmers / Kisan Vikas Sanghs / Registered Bodies of Farmers.
#8. Mukhyamantri Saur Krushi Pump Yojana
The Maharashtra government has launched the Mukhyamantri Saur Krushi Pump Yojana to benefit small farmers across the state. Under this scheme, the Maharashtra government aims to install around 1,00,000 off-grid solar water pumps. This scheme will be implemented in three different stages.
The first phase will include the installation of 25,000 solar-powered pumps, the second phase will include the installation of 50,000 pumps, and the final phase will include the installation of the remaining 25,000 pumps. The state government will pay 90 percent of the total project cost under this scheme, with the remainder paid by the beneficiaries themselves.
#9. Rajasthan Solar Pump Yojana
The Rajasthan government is also actively promoting solar energy products throughout the state. To encourage solar water pumping systems, the Rajasthan government is also providing subsidies on solar water pumps. Subsidy on solar pumps will reduce the burden of heavy upfront investment.
Rajasthan government works with the central government to provide subsidies for solar water pumps. The state government will provide up to 60% of the total cost under this subsidy scheme, with the owner responsible for the remainder.
#10. Surya Raitha Scheme-Karnataka
The government of Karnataka unveiled the Surya Raitha scheme in the state of Karnataka. Under this scheme, an on-grid/grid-connected solar water pump with net-metering feature will be installed. They will not only provide you with an alternative source of energy, but will also increase the income you receive from your fields.
In Karnataka, the government will provide 90% subsidy under the Surya Raitha scheme and the rest of 10% will be paid by the owner. This scheme is financed by interest-free soft loans from Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (BESCOM).
