An awareness program on PM-Kisan scheme was held at DC’s conference hall Tuensang on February 26, attended by district administration along with the banks of Tuensang district.

According to DIPR report, the special drive was initiated by the government to facilitate universal access to concessional institutional credit for all PM-Kisan beneficiaries. All PM-KISAN beneficiaries will be facilitated for the issue of Kisan Credit Card to avail benefits of concessional institutional credit. A simplified one-page form has been developed for coverage of PM-KISAN beneficiaries under KCC wherein they have to provide only the copy of the land record document and the crop sown along with the filled up form and approach the bank branch from where they are drawing PM-KISAN benefit, for issue of KCC.

All banks were advised to organise special camps and provide a separate window for accepting the forms and sanction KCC limit with the shortest possible time not exceeding 2 weeks. Officers of line departments including Agriculture, Animal Husbandry, Fisheries, and Rural Development will facilitate dissemination of awareness among all PM-Kisan beneficiaries and motivate them to visit the bank branches where they have PM-Kisan account for enrolment under KCC. KCC benefit has been extended to animal husbandry and fisheries farmers also. 

All charges including the processing, documentation, inspection and ledger folio charges as well as other service charges for KCC loans up to Rs 3 Lakhs have been waived. Bank branches have been advised to prepare a list of PM-Kisan beneficiaries who do not have KCC and share the same with the government functionaries of line departments so that they can be approached for availing the KCC benefit. All PM-Kisan beneficiaries have been auto-approved for KCC and require to simply visit the nearest bank branch with a copy of land documents and details of crop sown along with the filled up one-page form for availing the benefit.
