German Ambassador to India Walter J Lindner called on Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar here on Monday.

Lindner and Khattar discussed the scope for development initiatives in Haryana that can be taken up in collaboration with Germany, according to a state government statement.

Lindner enquired about various welfare measures initiated by the state government, including the Crop Diversification Programme and the Parivar Pehchan Patra Yojna aimed at creating verified and reliable data of all families in Haryana.

Under the Parivar Pehchan Patra Yojana, Khattar informed the visiting dignitary, each family is identified as a single unit for availing benefits of government welfare schemes.

Under the Crop Diversification Programme, the government is promoting cultivation of crops that consume less water and is incentivising farmers.
