SMAM Kisan Yojana

Farmers usually face a hard time making ends meet with the meager amount of money they end up making. 

In order to help poor farmers who are currently battling to stay above the poverty line, the Government of India has started the SMAM Kisan Yojana. 

Main objective of the SMAM Kisan Yojana 2020

The main objective of the SMAM Kisan Yojana is to make farming accessible and affordable to farmers. Usually, farmers go through a tough time sourcing out equipment, which, by itself, leaves them either in debt or bankrupt. 

Benefits offered by the SMAM Kisan Yojana 

  1. The prime benefit for farmers to enroll in this scheme is that the scheme will be provided to all farmers across the nation

  3. Farmers will get easy access to modern and cutting-edge farming products at really affordable prices through this scheme.  
  4. The scheme will offer additional benefits to those under the ST, SC and OBC quota in order to accomplish equity goals, as opposed to equality – which may not be sufficient for those coming from really deprived parts of the nation.
