About the Kisan Samridhi Yojana
The Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samridhi Yojana (PMKSY) was launched in 2016 as a centrally-sponsored scheme. The primary objective of the scheme is to double the income of farmers.
Under the PMKSY, farmers are entitled to various benefits, including:
- Direct cash transfers to their bank accounts.
- Subsidies for agricultural inputs.
- Financial assistance for crop insurance.
- Access to training and skill development programs.
The PMKSY has been widely appreciated by farmers across the country. In Jharkhand alone, over 2 million farmers have already benefited from this scheme.
