New Delhi: Amid the agitation of farmers against agricultural laws, the PM Modi government can give a big gift to the farmers in the budget. In this year’s budget, the central government can make a big announcement regarding agriculture and farming. According to the information, Rs 6000 can be increased under the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Scheme.
The budget session of Parliament is going to start on January 29. This session will run in two parts till April 8. The first phase of the budget session will be held from January 29 to February 15 while the second phase will run from March 8 to April 8. The session will begin with President Ram Nath Kovind addressing a joint sitting of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha of both houses of parliament. While the general budget will be presented on February 1 at 11 am.
The Finance Ministry’s preparations for the budget are in full swing. While the Prime Minister himself is constantly meeting to give a boost to the country’s economy. According to the information being received from sources in the midst of the farmer movement, the government can make a big announcement in this budget regarding farming and farming. It is being told that the government can increase the 6,000 rupees annually under the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Scheme. It is being told that the government can increase the amount from 6000 to 10000 rupees annually.
In fact, the farmer is also seeking to increase this amount from the central government. Farmers argue that Rs 6,000 a year is not enough. Farmers say that under this scheme they get Rs 500 per month which is not enough. It takes 3-3.5 thousand rupees to harvest an acre of paddy land, while they have to spend 2-2.5 thousand rupees for cultivating an acre of wheat. In such a situation, they do not get as much benefit from this scheme as they should. Therefore, the PM Modi government should increase this amount, so that farmers can get relief.
