PM Kisan Yojana Update: The central government runs many schemes to improve the economic condition of the farmers. Similarly, the name of a scheme is Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM Kisan Yojana). Under PM Kisan Yojana, an amount of six thousand rupees is provided every year to crores of farmers.
Union Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Narendra Singh Tomar reviewed the progress of this scheme in a virtual meeting with the Agriculture Ministers of the states. During the meeting, Tomar directed that no eligible farmer should be deprived of the benefits of this scheme. He also asked the states to complete the verification and updating of data at the earliest.
Explain that under the PM-Kisan scheme, eligible farmers are given Rs 6,000 every year in three equal installments of Rs 2,000 each, so that they can meet household needs as well as agriculture and allied expenses. Since its launch in February 2019, 11 installments have been disbursed under PM-KISAN. Through this scheme, more than Rs 2 lakh crore has been sent to about 11.37 crore eligible farmers.
The benefit of PM-Kisan is given only to those farmers who have land. A database is being prepared for early identification of eligible farmers for PM-KISAN, other schemes and farmers’ welfare schemes to be launched in future. In this, all the information including Aadhaar, bank accounts of farmers and land records of farmers will be linked to their records. To create a database, the land records of the states will have to be converted into digital form.
Agriculture ministers of Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Uttarakhand, Haryana, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh, Punjab, Rajasthan, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Bihar presented their views in the meeting. Union Agriculture Secretary Manoj Ahuja and Additional Secretary Abhilaksh Likhi and state ministers and senior officials attended the meeting.
