What is Kisan Yojna?

The Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana (PM-Kisan Yojana) is a government scheme that provides up to Rs 6,000 per year in minimum income support to all small and marginal farmers. This 75,000-crore scheme aims to cover 125 million farmers in India, regardless of the size of their landholding.

The PM Kisan Yojana provides an annual income support of Rs 6000 to all eligible farmer families across the country in three equal instalments of Rs 2,000 every four months. According to the scheme, a family consists of a husband, wife, and minor children. The Rs 2,000 fund is directly transferred to the farmers’/farmer’s family’s bank accounts.

Small and marginal farmers

According to the government, the new farm acts will benefit small and marginal farmers. However, APMC mandis and MSP have provided protection to this group of farmers, who account for nearly 85 percent of the farming community in India.

Thousands of farmers from Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, and other states are protesting the new farm acts in Delhi. Almost all farmer organisations in the country are also protesting. Farmers have stated that they will not leave Delhi until the draconian laws are repealed. They have received support from other segments of society, and many people have expressed solidarity with the farmers on social media.

In reality, what is the plight of our country’s small and marginal farmers, who account for nearly 85 percent of the farming community? Farmers with less than two hectares (five acres) of land are referred to as small farmers, while those with less than one hectare (2.5 acres) are referred to as marginal farmers. However, the average land holding of marginal farmers, who account for approximately 65 percent of total farmers in India, is less than one acre (0.4 hectares), while that of small farmers is around three acres (1.21 hectares).

Farm distress: big ideas to revitalise agriculture

Yes, say lakhs of farmers from Punjab, Haryana, and western Uttar Pradesh who have been protesting at Delhi’s Singhu, Ghazipur, and Tikri borders for the past ten months. They believe that forcing private buyers to buy their produce at the government’s MSP would solve the farmland crisis.

That may not be the case. The FCI’s procurement at MSP is primarily in paddy and wheat and benefits less than two crore farmers, primarily in the country’s well-irrigated and prosperous northern belt, where farm sizes are large and water is abundant. It excludes more than 20 crore farmers from the rest of India, where water is scarce and farm distress is severe.


Furthermore, over three-fourths of FCI procurement is done from farmers with more than 10 acres of land, rather than from small and marginal farmers. This is primarily due to economies of scale, rather than any bias against small farmers.
