KCC will be able to get loans from banks for fertilizer, seeds and water at cheap interest.
Know how many farmers will benefit
The Yogi Adityanath government will issue Kisan Credit Cards to 12 lakh farmers of Uttar Pradesh. Negotiations have also been held between the Uttar Pradesh government and the central government. The central government may soon issue directions. In fact, there are currently two crore 43 lakh beneficiaries of Kisan Samman Nidhi in the state. Out of these, only one crore 53 lakh beneficiaries have got Kisan Credit Card. Till date, Kisan Credit Cards of 90 lakh farmers have not been made.
The first objective of the government under this card is to provide loans to farmers for purchase of agricultural related things like manure, seeds, pesticides etc. The second objective is that farmers should not have to take loans from moneylenders, who recover arbitrary interest. Loans availed under Kisan Credit Card are cheaper by 2-4 percent. The loan will have to be repaid on time.
