An Indian Central Sector Program called Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM-Kisan) supports the income of landholding farmers’ families. This program offers farmers additional financial assistance so they can buy various inputs for agriculture, associated activities, and their own household needs.
All landholding farmer households with arable land are given income support by PM-Kisan. The Government of India provides all financing for this program. It attempts to augment farmers’ financial need for purchasing agricultural supplies in order to ensure proper crop health and suitable output.
Families of farmers who qualify for financial assistance under the scheme’s rules are identified by the State Government and UT administration. The money are immediately transferred to the beneficiaries after their identification.
