Living in Beri village of Sikar district, Santosh Devi Khedar earns Rs 25 lakh per year off her 1.25-acre land. Impressive, right? Well, what’s even more inspiring is the fact that 10 years ago, her family was barely earning enough to make ends meet from the same land!
In 2008, her husband and his three brothers split, dividing the five-acre ancestral land. Her husband, a home guard and earning a meager salary of Rs 3,000, used to work in the five-acre ancestral farm before the division and even then they made hardly any profit from the barren land.
