Haryana government has decided to install over 1,00,000 solar water pumps for irrigation across the state, out of which 25,000 will be installed next year.
The state has also decided to install rooftop solar panels on community health centres and primary health centres across the state.
The state had earlier decided to provide 90% subsidy on solar pumps. It had also decided to exempt solar devices and parts used in installation of solar power projects from the levy of Value Added Tax (VAT) in the state.
The state budget had announced that the state will make available 3050 solar pump sets of 2 HP and 5 HP capacity for farmers by spending Rs 122 crore.
