The Modi government has started many schemes with the aim of doubling the income of the farmers. One of those schemes is PM Kisan Samman Nidhi. This is such a scheme of the government, in which money is sent directly to the account of farmers.
6,000 rupees are transferred annually in the account of every farmer. The government sends this money in 3 equal instalments. That is, the central government transfers 2,000-2,000 thousand rupees in every installment.
