Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM-Kisan) scheme was launched by PM Modi in 2019. The objective of the scheme is to provide income support to all landholding farmer families across the country with cultivable land, subject to certain exclusions.

Under the scheme, an amount of Rs 6000 per annum is released directly into the bank accounts of the beneficiaries in three 4-monthly installments of Rs 2000 each. In a financial year, PM Kisan installment is deposited thrice –period from 1st April-July; period from August 2 to November; And the period from December 3 to March.

Initially when the PM-Kisan scheme was launched (February, 2019), its benefits were admissible only to the families of small and marginal farmers who had a combined landholding of up to 2 hectares. The scheme was later revised in June 2019 and extended to all farmer families, irrespective of their holding size.

The Central Government had notified the decision to give a benefit of Rs 6,000 per year to all 14.5 crore farmers of the country under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana, irrespective of the size of their holdings.
