In poll season, assured income support for farmers

Feb 01, 2019 14:09 IST

With agrarian distress likely to be a sticky point ahead of elections, Finance Minister Piyush Goyal has announced a major sp for small farmers. The Pradhan Mantri Fund Scheme assures farmers with up to 2 hectares of land an annual income of ₹6,000 which will be directly transferred to their bank accounts through three ₹2,000 installments. The government has sidelined ₹75,000 crore for the scheme.
