kisan credit card Scheme Details for Farmer Interest free Loan Process

 The state government is going to provide credit card facility to lakhs of needy farmers.

To save the farmers from the clutches of moneylenders, the scheme of getting credit cards from banks is being implemented, so that they can easily get loans at cheap rates for farming work. Every year the target of making Kisan Credit Card is also fixed, but lakhs of needy farmers in the state are not getting this facility. The condition is that the credit cards of all the farmers who have received the Kisan Samman Nidhi have not yet been made.

This time the expected rainfall has not been received in the Kharif season. The total rainfall in the state is less than 50 percent. About two dozen districts have not received even 40 percent rainfall. In view of the rainfall, reports have been sought from all the districts on the drought situation. Farmers who have planted paddy or sown other crops have to do enough to save the crop. For this they need money. In such a situation, Kisan Credit Card can benefit everyone.

This year 65 lakh 21 thousand 802 farmers have a target of making credit cards, out of which only 21 lakh 79 thousand 363 farmers, ie only 33 percent, have been able to get the card till July 31.
