Key features of the PM Kisan Mandhan Yojana

  • Objective

Farmers are financially weak, and require all the economic support that the state and central governments can provide. With the launch of this pension project, the central government will ensure that aged farmers get a specific monetary allowance in their bank accounts.

  • Pension scheme for farmers

The details of this social and financial welfare scheme highlight that it has been implemented with the single purpose of offering agricultural workers with a set pension.

  • Pension amount

Under this scheme, any beneficiary will be able to secure a pension of Rs. 3000 per month.

  • Pension scheme activation age

Once the beneficiary attains the age of 60 years, LIC will activate the pension account and he/she will attain the monthly grant.

  • Range of contribution amount

The monthly amount that has to be contributed by the beneficiary will depend on the current age from when he/she applies for the project. However, estimates highlight that the minimum contribution amount is as low as Rs. 55, while the upper limit of the deposit will not be more than Rs. 250.

  • Beneficiary-central contribution

The premium payment will be shared by the beneficiary and the central government. It means, if the beneficiary deposits a certain amount in the pension fund, the central government will also contribute the same amount in the beneficiary’s account.
