Annual Pension of Rs 36,000 for Farmers

To improve the lifestyle of farmer families, the Central Government launched the PM Kisan Maandhan Yojana on September 12, 2019. PM Kisan Maandhan is a contribution-based scheme where small and marginal farmers can deposit a monthly amount into the pension fund. This means that to avail the benefits of this scheme, farmers have to deposit a monthly installment, which will amount to Rs 3,000 upon reaching the age of 60. In other words, you will receive an annual pension of Rs 36,000.

Deposit Range for Rs 3,000 Pension: Rs 55 to Rs 200 Monthly

Under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Maandhan Yojana, the Central Government provides a pension of Rs 3,000 per month to farmers. The investment amount varies according to the applicant’s age.
