PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana: Under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan (PM-Kisan) Samman Nidhi Yojana (Scheme) the Narendra Modi-led government provides income support of Rs 6,000 to small and marginal farmer families having combined land holding/ownership of up to 2 hectares. While beneficiaries get the first installment between December and March, the second and third installment is credited into their account between April and July and August-November respectively. State Government and UT administration identify the farmer families which are eligible for support as per scheme guidelines and directly transfer the fund to the bank accounts of the beneficiaries.Also Read - PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana: Farmers Likely to Receive 9th Instalment Today.
