Farmers between 18 years and 40 years can avail the benefits of this scheme.
Under this, contributions from 55 to 200 rupees have to be paid every month and farmers get a pension of 3000 rupees per month after the age of 60 years. The management of pension giving is handed over to the Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC).
What is Pradhan Mantri Kisan Maandhan Yojana?
Pradhan Mantri Kisan Maandhan Yojana is only for farmers. Farmers between 18 to 40 years can avail the benefits of this scheme. If you are 18 years old and register for this scheme then you will have to pay 55 rupees per month. If you are 40 years old then you will have to contribute 200 rupees. The lower the age, the lower the contribution of the farmer. As you are seeing, an 18 year old farmer has to give 55 and a 40 year old farmer 200 rupees every month.
The contribution of the farmer in the Prime Minister Kisan Manadhan Yojana will be equal to the contribution made by the government in the account of the farmer. If you contribute 200 rupees every month, then the government will also contribute 200 rupees to your account.
To take advantage of this scheme, there should be cultivable land in the name of the farmer. After the age of 60, every farmer who registers will get a pension of 3000 rupees. That is, 36,000 rupees annually. The government has made a plan to give its benefits to all the 12 crore farmers who have arable land up to 2 hectares (5 acres).
