PM Modi launches financing facility under Agriculture Infrastructure Fund
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a special fund of one lakh crore rupees to prepare agricultural facilities in the country. This will help in creating better storage, modern cold storage chains in the villages and many employment opportunities will be created in the village.
PM Modi said that along with this, transferring 17 thousand crore rupees as PM Kisan Samman Nidhi to the account of eight and a half crore farmer families, I am also very satisfied. The satisfaction is that the goal of this scheme is being achieved. In the last year and a half, through this scheme 75 thousand crores rupees have been deposited directly in the bank accounts of farmers. Of this, 22 thousand crore rupees have been passed on to the farmers during the lockdown due to corona.
He said that now the solutions to all these questions related to farmers and farming are being found under the Self-Reliant India Campaign. The mission of one country, one market, for which the work was going on for the last 7 years, is now being completed. Through the first e-NAM, a large technology-based system was created. Now, by making law, the farmer was exempted from the purview of the mandi and the mandi tax. Now the farmer has many options.
