Common Service Centres (CSC) set target 2 crore farmers's registration till August 15 for a pension of 3000 rupees

The Common Service Center (CSC), which is benefiting government schemes through more than 3.5 lakh centers across the country, has made a detailed plan for the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Man Dhan Yojana (PMKMY). CSC has set a target of registering a pension of Rs 3000 per month for more than 2 crore farmers across the country by 15 August. Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar has started registration for Kisan Pension Scheme on August 9 itself. Appeal to Rural Center Operators to register 100 Speaking to PTI, CSC CEO Dinesh Tyagi said that we have more than 2 lakh village level entrepreneurs (VLEs) in rural areas.

We have asked all these VLEs to register at least 100 small and marginal farmers by August 15. Tyagi said that to fulfill this goal, on August 15, Independence Day, farmers have been asked to register. He said that the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare has specially constituted CSC for enrollment of subscribers. Very easy registration process Tyagi said that the process of registration for Pradhan Mantri Kisan Maandhan Pension Scheme is very easy.

Those eligible farmers who want to join this scheme can register with their Aadhar card and bank passbook at their nearest CSC. The VLEs operating the CSC will complete the online registration process by taking all the information of the farmers. After the authentication process is completed, the farmers who register will get the information and their PMKMY pension card will be generated with the unique pension account number. Farmers across the country will get benefits Tyagi stated that PMKMY was announced in the 2019-20 budget.

Under this scheme, eligible farmers will get a monthly pension of Rs 3000 after completing 60 years of age. Under this scheme, all small and marginal farmers holding up to 2 hectares of land including Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh will get pension. It is a voluntary and contribution based pension scheme. Farmers between the age of 18 to 40 years can avail this scheme.

To take advantage of this scheme, farmers will have to contribute from Rs 55 to Rs 200 depending on the age. The same contribution will be made by the government to the farmer's pension fund.
