Farmers will now get Rs. 4000, instead of Rs. 2000, deposited to their accounts under the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana, reports say. However, if any farmer is yet to register himself/herself under the PM Kisan Scheme, not many days are left and the last date for registration is September 30. If your application gets accepted, you will have Rs. 2000 deposited into your account by October or November followed by another instalment of Rs 2000 in December.
Reports suggest that the government is considering doubling the amount doled out to farmers under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana (PM KISAN). In case this happens, farmers will be able to avail Rs 12000 in three instalments instead of the previously received Rs 6000 every year. To date, about 12.14 crore farmer families have benefitted from this scheme.
