PM Kisan Scheme

PM Kisan Scheme represents a significant step by the Indian government towards supporting its agricultural sector and the welfare of farmers. By providing financial aid directly to farmers, the scheme aims to alleviate some of the financial burdens faced by the agricultural community, especially the small and marginal landholders. While it has shown positive outcomes, continuous efforts to improve the identification and reach to all eligible beneficiaries are essential for maximizing its impact.

Nationwide Reach: The scheme is implemented nationwide, covering all parts of India, with special attention to small and marginal farmers.
