PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Scheme 2020
The Central Government has launched the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana (PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana) with an aim to provide financial assistance to the farmers. The scheme was announced by Piyush Goyal on 1 February 2019! Under this scheme, there is a provision to provide financial assistance of 6000 rupees per year to the poor and marginal farmers! This amount will be directly transferred by the central government to the bank account of the farmers! This amount of 6 thousand rupees will be transferred to the farmers in three installments (two thousand per installment) by the government!
But now the Central Government has been suggested to double this assistance amount from Rs 6000 to 12000! The suggestion to double this amount has been given by the opposition leader and former Finance Minister P. Chithambaram! Former finance minister says that the lock-down has worsened the economic condition of the farmers. And now if the farmers are not provided financial help, then the farmers will be in a state of self-murder! Therefore, the central government should help farmers financially by doubling the amount of Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Scheme.
If the central government accepts the suggestion, then the farmers will get Rs 12 thousand.

A total amount of 12 thousand rupees will be received every year! This will greatly benefit the farmers! But doubling the support amount will also double the amount on the central government! The financial condition of the central government has also deteriorated due to the lockdown!
