PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Scheme: Poor and marginalised farmers of the country are set to get Rs 6000 under the PM Kisan scheme of the Narendra Modi government. For this, the government has launched an official website at www.pmkisan.gov.in. The Rs 6000 help will be provided in three instalments of Rs 2000 each in the bank accounts of the eligible farmers. Under the scheme, Rs 6,000 will be given per year to small and marginal farmer families having combined land holding/ownership of up to two hectares. The amount will be given in three instalments of Rs 2,000 each and will be transferred directly to the bank accounts of beneficiaries through the direct benefit transfer (DBT) scheme. The Direct Benefit Transfer will ensure transparency in the process and save time for farmers.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the scheme from Gorakhpur on Sunday (24-02-2019).
PM Kisan Nidhi Scheme Objective
The scheme aims to augment the income of the Small and Marginal Farmers (SMFs). It will supplement the financial needs of the SMFs in procuring various inputs to ensure proper crop health and appropriate yields, commensurate with the anticipated farm income at the end of each crop cycle. The scheme will also help protect farmers from falling in the clutches of moneylenders for meeting such expenses and ensure their continuance in the farming activities.
PM Kisan Nidhi Yojana cut-off date
The PM Kisan scheme will be effective from 1-12-2018 for transfer of benefit to eligible beneficiaries. The cut-off date for determining the eligibility of beneficiaries has been kept as 01.02.2019.
