According to sources Rythu Raksha is a scheme aimed at providing input subsidy for farmers in Andhra Pradesh. Meanwhile the Government has proposed to credit the money directly into the bank account of farmers and the scheme will be implemented from the next Kharif season in a phased manner. Hence this scheme will also include tenant farmers. Furthermore the guidelines for the scheme was finalized in yesterday's Cabinet meeting, said an official on condition of anonymity. 

Reportedly the government is mulling to credit Rs.10, 000 per year per acre into farmers' accounts as part of the Rythu Raksha scheme. Moreover political observers have pointed out that AP's Rythu Raksha scheme has been designed on the lines of Telangana's Rythu Bandhu scheme which provides financial help of Rs 4,000 per acre per annum, to farmers, for purchasing inputs like seeds, fertilizers, pesticides, labor and other investments.
