Government Scheme: Farmers will get huge profits from these government schemes, apply like this..


Many government schemes are being run for the development of farmers. The aim of these schemes is to empower the farmers economically. However, due to lack of information, farmers are not able to take advantage of these schemes. Here we will tell you about five big schemes of the Central Government. With the help of these schemes, farmers can increase their earnings.


Prime Minister Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana:
Under PM Kisan Yojana, farmers are given financial assistance of Rs 6,000 annually. This amount is sent to the farmers' accounts in 3 installments of Rs 2,000 each at an interval of every 4 months. Now a new update is coming out. The central government implemented this scheme in December 2018. Till now, Rs 2.81 lakh crore has been sent to the accounts of more than 11 crore farmers. Under this scheme, transfers are made through ‘Direct Benefit Transfer’ (DBT).

PM Kisan Maandhan Yojana:
Only farmers between 18 to 40 years of age can apply for this scheme. These farmers should have two hectares of land. If you are 18 years old and join this scheme, then you will have to deposit Rs 55 every month. At the same time, at the age of 30 years this amount will increase to Rs 110 and at the age of 40 years it will increase to Rs 200. The farmer has to pay this amount till the age of 60 years. Farmers will be able to avail the benefits of this scheme after the age of 60 years. This amount will be given as pension to elderly farmers. An amount of three thousand rupees will be sent to the farmers' accounts every month.

Crop Insurance Policy:
Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana is a scheme run for the benefit of farmers. Under this, farmers are given compensation if their crops are damaged due to any kind of natural calamities. With this, the government is able to help more and more farmers of the country in times of trouble. If you want to avail the benefit of PM Crop Insurance Scheme, then you will have to pay a fixed premium. This premium is very low which everyone can pay. For Kharif crop, you have to pay a premium of up to two percent of the insurance amount. At the same time, for Rabi crop, premium of up to 1.5 percent will have to be paid. Apart from this, if we talk about horticultural crops, you will have to pay a maximum of 5 percent of the crop insurance amount as premium.


Prime Minister's Agricultural Irrigation Scheme:
Many parts of the country are facing severe water shortage these days. The traditional method of irrigating crops is further increasing this problem. In such a situation, drip irrigation technique is proving to be very beneficial for the farmers. This technology not only saves water and produce from wastage, but also increases productivity. Under this scheme, bumper subsidy is also given to farmers on new irrigation techniques like drip and sprinkler.
