Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi, popularly known as (PM-KISAN) scheme completes one year today (24th February, 2020). Government had started the scheme with a view to increase the income of farmers by offering income support to all landholding farmers’ families across India. Under PM-Kisan yojana an amount of Rs.6000 per year is distributed in three equal installments of Rs.2000 directly into the farmers’ bank accounts. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had formally launched the scheme on 24th February 2019 at a grand function in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh.

PM-Kisan initially provided income support to all Small & Marginal Farmers’ families all over the country, having cultivable land up to two hectares. Later its ambit was expanded w.e.f. 1st June 2019 to cover all farmer families in India irrespective of the size of their landholdings. The government also made special provisions for the North-East States where land ownership rights are community-based, Forest Dwellers & Jharkhand that does not have updated land records along with restrictions on the transfer of land.
