Narendra Modi launches PM-Kisan scheme, 12 crore farmers will be benefited

"When we announced this scheme in Parliament, their faced dropped fearing that now Modi will get the blessings of the farmers", he said, alleging that the loan waiver of Rs 52,000 crore done by the UPA government before the last general election was a farce.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday launched the ambitious Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi scheme transferring the first instalment of Rs 2,000 each to over one crore farmers.

The launch of the scheme demonstrated two things, Modi said - NDA's unwavering commitment to farmer welfare and speedy decision making, being launched on February 24 after having announced it on February 1. PM Modi digitally transferred the first instalment of Rs. 2,000 each to over one crore farmers.

The money will go to the cultivating farmer as well as the absentee landlord, the former finance minister said. "They did not have the will to empower the farmer community but to keep them dependant".

PM Narendra Modi today rolled out Rs 75,000 crore KISAN income scheme for farmers from Gorakhpur. The Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi will be launched from Gorakhpur. "For transfer of benefit, district-wise beneficiaries' list has to be certified and uploaded by the states/union territories on the PM-KISAN portal of the central government", it added.

The Prime Minister cautioned farmers to be careful about canards being spread about this scheme by the opposition parties. "In his five-year tenure he has launched several scheme's", said Union agriculture minister, Radha Mohan Singh. Under this, Rs 6,000 will be paid to 12 crore small and marginal farmers holding cultivable land of up to two hectares per year in three instalments.

The ministry in its statement did not mention the number of farmers who will get their first instalment of Rs 2,000 on Sunday.

Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM-KISAN) would not only provide assured supplemental income to the most vulnerable farmer families, but would also meet their emergent needs especially before the harvest season. The money will be directly transferred into the accounts of beneficiaries.

Attacking the opposition's "Mahagathbandhan" PM Modi said, "Warn those state govts who are looking to play politics with PM Kisan Yojna, if you indulge in this then curse of farmers will destroy your politics.I appeal to farmers, don't be misled by anyone".
