On the other hand, if you also want to take advantage of this scheme, then you should have an account in PM Kisan Yojana. Recently the government has announced that it's going to give credit cards to at least 2.5 crore farmers across the country.

Only 4 percent interest rate on loan

The first benefit under this scheme is that the farmer can take a loan of up to 3 lakh rupees in 5 years in a short term through this card. But if you want to take a loan without this scheme then you have to pay the interest rate of 9%. But it is subsidized by 2 percent. In this sense, it was 7 percent. On the other hand, if the farmer returns this loan on time, then he also gets a further rebate of 3%, i.e. on this condition he will have to pay only 4% interest on the loan.
