    Abstract

    The present study was undertaken to analyze the fruit growers’ perceptions toward government subsidies and constraints faced while availing the government subsidies. The study was conducted among the fruit growers of Ludhiana District of Punjab. The study points out that rate of subsidy, lack of information about prevalent subsidies, and long documentation procedure are the major factors, that influence the decision regarding availing of subsidies. Also, it is found that low awareness, lack of orientation programs and non-proximity to sanctioning authority’s office are the major constraints faced by the fruit growers while availing government subsidies. The present study suggests certain measures to remove these constraints, in order to make the government programs a success.
