Fishermen's Diesel and Petrol Subsidy Scheme

Management of Fishermen’s Diesel and Petrol Subsidy Scheme

This scheme was implemented in 2006 to help cover part of the cost of fishing operations borne by fishermen due to the increase in oil prices in the market. In 2021 a total of 51,926 vessel owners received diesel and petrol subsidies. The total distribution of subsidized diesel and petrol in 2021 for catchment zones A, B and C amounted to 637,843,954 liters while for catchment zone C2 the provision of subsidized diesel had been abolished.

The number of recipients of subsidized diesel and petrol by state in 2021 is as follows:
