What is PM-KISAN
It is a path-breaking support incentive for farmers. The genesis of the PM-KISAN Yojana dates back to the interim Budget for the year 2019-2020. The key element of PM-KISAN was income support of Rs. 6000 to the small and marginal landholder farmer families with cultivable land holding up to 2 hectare across the country. This was expanded on Friday. The amount under the scheme is released in three 4-monthly instalments of Rs.2000 each over the year and credited into the bank accounts of the beneficiaries held in destination banks through Direct Benefit Transfer mode. The scheme was launched in a record time of 3 weeks, on 24th February at a huge programme in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh where the first round of instalments was paid to several farmers.
The first instalment went to 3.11 crore beneficiaries and the second instalment to 2.66 crore beneficiaries was credited directly to the bank accounts of the farmer families.
