Under this scheme, farmers between 18 to 40 years of age can register and take the benefit.  This article will help with the rules/regulations and registration process.

So far, 19, 99,319 farmers have registered under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Maandhan Yojana.  The pension scheme is meant for old age protection & social security of Small & Marginal Farmers having up to 2 hectares of land.

Under Pradhan Mantri Kisan Maandhan Yojana, farmers will get a minimum assured pension of three thousand rupees per month after completing the age of 60 years and if the farmer dies then the spouse will be entitled to receive 50 percent of the pension as family pension. It is important to mention that family pension is applicable only to the spouse.

PM Kisan Maandhan Yojana Benefits

Officials of the Ministry of Agriculture said that there will be no fees or charges to register for PM-KMY. If a farmer is already availing the benefit of PM-Kisan yojana then he will not have to submit separate documents for this pension scheme.

In addition, under PM-KMY, you can choose to contribute directly from the benefits received from PM-Kisan yojana. This way, you will not have to spend money directly from your pocket.

If a contributor exits the scheme within a period of less than 10 years from the date of joining then his share of contribution will be returned to him with savings bank rate of interest payable thereon.
