PM Kisan : Farmer’s will get free Kisan Credit Card, Here’s how to apply
New Delhi : 1.5 crore farmers of the country have been given Kisan Credit Cards after linking the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana and KCC Scheme. The spending limit of this card is Rs 1.35 lakh crore. From 24 February 2020 a special campaign was launched to give KCC to the beneficiaries of Kisan Samman Nidhi. The Modi government had announced the issuance of 2.5 crore Kisan Credit Cards with a spending limit of Rs 2 lakh crore. So right now 1 crore more beneficiaries of PM Kisan will get KCC.
The government wants to fill the gap between the PM Kisan and the beneficiaries of KCC. Therefore, it has been made easier to get KCC for the benefit of the PM Kisan. Since the registered farmers in this scheme have been biometric, the records of their agriculture, bank and Aadhaar are verified, so the bank cannot condone giving them KCC.
Under the PM Kisan Scheme, the database of Aadhar card, revenue record and bank account number of 11.45 crore farmers of the country has come to the central government. The Union Ministry of Agriculture has already approved this record of farmers who are getting the benefit of the Rs 6000 scheme.
In such a situation, the bank cannot harass the farmer for this. The farmer can tell the bank that he is getting the benefit of the PM Kisan scheme and every record of it has been verified by the central and state government.
After linking the KCC scheme to the PM Kisan scheme, the trouble of KYC has also ended. Now only one page form has to be filled by the farmers to get a Kisan Credit Card. Which can be downloaded from the right side of the farmer tab by visiting
