Growers can apply for the Rubber Production Incentive Scheme (RPIS) by the Kerala state government with the cooperation of Rubber Board, India up to 30 November 2019. The period for registration under the scheme ended on September 30, 2019. The scheme assures a minimum of Rs. 150 for rubber sheets and Rs. 142 for latex produced by the growers of Kerala. Since the Rubber Producers’ Societies need more time to enter the details of new applicants in the online portal of RPIS, the Rubber Board has requested the State Government to extend the last date for registration, a statement said.
The growers who have already joined in the scheme may approach the Rubber Producers’ Societies along with the copy of latest tax receipt of rubber planted area for renewal of registration under the scheme. For details- 0481 2576622.
