Farmers go through many problems throughout their life including financial crisis, which becomes more difficult in their old age. To help farmers deal with all such problems in their old age, the Modi Government has launched a pension scheme known as Pradhan Mantri Kisan Mandhan Yojana in August 2019. Under this government scheme, farmers between 18 – 40 years of age can register and take monthly pension of Rs. 3000.
Till now, 20, 501, 29 farmers have registered under Pradhan Mantri Kisan Maandhan Yojana. The pension scheme is for the old age protection as well as social security of small and marginal farmers having 2 hectares of land.
Under Pradhan Mantri Kisan Maandhan Yojana, farmers will get assured pension of Rs. 3000 per month after completing the age of 60 years and if they die then their spouse will be entitled to receive 50% of the pension as family pension. Remember that a family pension is applicable only to the spouse.
Benefits of PM Kisan Maandhan Yojana
- Guaranteed Pension of Rs. 3000 / month or Rs. 36000/year

Officials of the Ministry of Agriculture have made it clear that there will be no fees to register for PM-KMY. And if a farmer is already getting the benefit of PM-Kisan scheme then he will not have to submit separate documents for this pension yojana.
