Modi government is running a campaign of giving KCC i.e. Kisan Credit Card to more and more farmers. During the Corona lockdown, the government had targeted to give cards to 2.5 crore farmers. So far, 1.5 crore new beneficiaries of this scheme have been created. One crore more people have to make cards for free. The role of banks is important in meeting this target. State Bank of India has given complete information about its card.
To increase the scope of KCC scheme, the government has asked banks to set up camps in villages. Also, the processing fee incurred for making it has been abolished. It has been linked to the Prime Minister Kisan Samman Nidhi Scheme (PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Scheme). So that it is easy to make KCC. Under the PM Kisan Scheme, the central government has verified all the data of crore farmers. Therefore, the bank cannot condone giving KCC.
