Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday released Rs 17,000 crore under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM-KISAN) scheme. This will benefit over 10 crore farmers across the country.
The PM-KISAN scheme is a government-backed income support scheme for farmers. Under the scheme, eligible farmers receive an annual payment of Rs 6,000 in three equal installments.
The release of the 14th instalment of PM-KISAN comes at a time when farmers are facing a number of challenges, including rising input costs and declining crop yields. The additional financial support will help farmers to meet their input costs and improve their crop yields.
Tripura Chief Minister Manik Saha welcomed the release of the 14th instalment of PM-KISAN. He said that the scheme will benefit lakhs of farmers in Tripura. He also urged the farmers to use the additional financial support to improve their agricultural productivity.
The release of the 14th instalment of PM-KISAN is a welcome step by the government. It will provide much-needed financial support to farmers and help them to improve their agricultural productivity.
Here are some of the benefits of the PM-KISAN scheme:
- Provides financial support to farmers

The PM-KISAN scheme is a valuable initiative by the government to support farmers. It is a step in the right direction to ensure food security for the country.
