On February 24, 2019, PM Modi had launched the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana with the motive of supporting farmers across India. The Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi scheme is funded by the Central government to provide financial assistance to farmer families. With that, anyone who is a farmer would need to register themselves on the Yojana portal and thereafter avail of the benefit.
Currently, under the PM-KISAN scheme, a financial benefit of Rs 6,000 per year is provided to the eligible beneficiary farmer families, payable in three equal four-monthly installments of Rs 2,000 each. The fund is transferred directly to the bank accounts of the beneficiaries. However, it was being said in September that the amount will be doubled up and now they may receive Rs 12,000 per annum instead of Rs 6,000.
