Good news for farmers amid lockdown. The Central government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made the process of making Kisan Credit Card (KCC) very easy for the beneficiaries of PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana. Farmers can easily get loans for fertilizer, seeds etc. through the Kisan Credit Card.

Through the Kisan Credit Card, farmers can take short-term loan of up to Rs 3 lakh. Though the loan is available at the rate of 9 percent, but the government gives a subsidy of 2 percent on it and if the farmer returns the loan amount on time, then he gets a further rebate of 3 percent. This means he has to pay only 4 percent interest on the loan through Kisan Credit Card.


Scheme to provide KCC to 2.5 crore farmers

The government has decided to give Kisan credit cards to 2.5 crore farmers registered under PM Kisan Yojana. The interest rate for the Kisan credit card loan will be very low. In the current financial year, the government will disburse loan worth Rs 2 lakh crore to the farmers. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced it under the Covid-19 economic package.
