Krishi Udan Scheme 2.0 includes 58 airports

On October 27, 2021, the Krishi Udan Scheme 2.0 was unveiled, improving upon the previous provisions and primarily focusing on the transportation of perishable food items from mountainous regions, North-Eastern States, and tribal territories. Airports Authority of India (AAI) offers full waivers of Landing, Parking, Terminal Navigational Landing Charges (TNLC), and Route Navigation Facility Charges (RNFC) for Indian freighters and P2C (Passenger-to-Cargo) Aircraft in order to facilitate and encourage the movement of agricultural products by air transportation. In addition to 28 airports in other regions/areas, the project principally includes roughly 25 airports with a concentration on the North Eastern, Hilly, and Tribal region. Five additional airports have been added after Krishi Udan 2.0 was evaluated, bringing the total to 58 airports.

In the Krishi Udan Scheme, eight Ministries/Departments—the Ministry of Civil Aviation, the Department of Agriculture & Farmers' Welfare, the Department of Animal Husbandry and Dairy, the Department of Fisheries, the Ministry of Food Processing Industries, the Department of Commerce, the Ministry of Tribal Affairs, and the Ministry of Development of the North-Eastern Region—will pool their resources and existing programmes to improve the logistics for transporting agricultural products. Under the Krishi Udan Scheme, no precise budgetary allocation exists.

The primary goal of the Krishi Udan Scheme 2.0 is to enhance the proportion of air transportation in the mix of modes used to move agricultural goods, which also includes items from horticulture, fisheries, livestock, and processed goods. The programme helps farmers transport their produce in order to increase the value of their output.
