Kolkata: Under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Sammani Nidhi Yojana, the flagship program of the PM Modi government, small and marginal farmers are given Rs 6,000 a year. 


This amount, given in three installments of Rs 2,000 each, is directly transferred to the bank accounts of the farmers. An installment comes in 4 months. The aim of the government is to double the income of farmers. But this scheme of the central government is not applicable in West Bengal. 


Addressing an election meeting in West Bengal, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said that before the formation of a BJP government in the state, money will be given to the farmers under PM Kisan Samman Nidhi. This money will be given in retrospective effect since the time the scheme was implemented. Thus about 70 lakh farmers of West Bengal will get the benefit of this scheme. 


"Soon after the formation of a BJP government in West Bengal, we will give Rs 6000 this year and Rs 12,000 of last year. That is, the total amount that will be given to the farmers is Rs 18,000," Amit Shah said. 


CM Mamta Banerjee has not implemented the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi in West Bengal, due to which farmers are not getting Rs 6,000 annually.


70 lakh farmers lose Rs 9,660 crore


Assembly elections are going to be held in West Bengal. In such a situation, it can also be called a political statement. However, if you look at the budget of the PM farmer, it is enough. Due to which farmers can be given along with the previous amount. PM farmer has become a big issue in the state. About 70 lakh farmers have lost crores of rupees in the state. The Ministry of Agriculture has estimated it at Rs 9,660 crore.


Some farmers in the state applied online. But the work of verification is with the state government. Due to non-verification of the state government, the central government could not help these farmers.


Money is transferred to farmers' accounts in this way

 

Under the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi scheme, farmers have to apply online. Then the state government verifies your revenue record, Aadhaar number and bank account number. Until the state government verifies your account, the money does not come. 


As soon as the state government verifies, then the FTO is generated. Then after this, the central government transfers the money to the account.
