Let me tell you that government has introduced a pension scheme for farmers known as Pradhan Mantri Kisan Maandhan Yojana (PM-KMY) that provides social as financial security to farmers of the country.

Under PM Kisan Maandhan Yojana, a minimum fixed pension of Rs. 3000 will be provided to eligible farmers, depending on certain exclusion clauses, on completing sixty years. This is a voluntary as well as contributory pension plan, with an entry age of 18 to 40 years.

A farmer beneficiary can become a member of PM-KMY by subscribing to a Pension Fund, which is managed by LIC.

He or she will have to make a monthly contribution of Rs. 55 to 200 to the Pension Fund and this will depend on the age of entry into the scheme - with a provision of equal contribution by the Central government.

Moreover, withdrawal from the PM-KMY can be willingly or on the failure of contribution or on death.

On exit from PM-KMY, beneficiary will get his accumulated share while the Government's contribution will be deposited in the LIC Fund.

After the death of subscriber, the spouse will be entitled to receive 50 percent of the pension as family pension, provided he is not a SMF beneficiary of the yojana.
