New Delhi. To meet the expenses related to farming to the farmers, the central government sends an amount of 6000 rupees a year directly to their accounts under the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi . The government started this scheme from 2019. So far, the government has reached Rs 16000 in 8 installments. However, the 8th installment is still to come in the accounts of some farmers. Along with this, the government provides cheap loans with the help of Kisan Credit Card to protect the farmers from the clutches of moneylenders.
Let us know that if you are also included in the beneficiaries of PM Kisan, then the Modi government is also providing you a loan at a cheaper rate. Explain that this loan is available on the Kisan Credit Card (KCC), made under the Self-Reliant India Scheme (Atmanirbhar Bharat Yojana). The government had directed to include every farmer in this scheme last year.
Linked the Kisan Credit Card Scheme for farmers to the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana (PMSYM). Due to this, farmers are getting easy installments and low interest loans. If you have not taken advantage of this service then you can take it.
Documents required for KCC
KCC form has been given on PM Kisan Scheme website PMkisan.gov.in. There is a clear instruction in this that banks can give loans by taking only 3 documents. For making a Kisan Credit Card, Aadhaar card, PAN card and photo of the beneficiary are used. Also, an affidavit has to be given, stating that you have not taken a loan from any other bank. As of February 2020, there were approximately 6.67 crore active KCC accounts.
