Collaboration between directorate of agriculture and Goa Posts

GOA:  In a collaboration between the directorate of agriculture and Goa Posts, PM-Kisan disbursements are now being done through the India Post Payments Bank (IPPB) service. “The benefit of central and state agriculture schemes must reach every farmer. Krishi card holders in the state must therefore avail of the PM-Kisan yojana,” agriculture minister, Chandrakant Kavalekar said.

There are 28,000 Krishi card holders, of which 21,000 are eligible for the PM-Kisan scheme. However, only 10,000 are beneficiaries and the rest have not yet filled the forms for this scheme. “Now, the zonal agriculture officers (ZAO) are making efforts to ensure the remaining farmers also avail of the scheme. I request them to come forward and fill out the application to get the benefit. The account can be opened with the postal department for this scheme even at zero balance,” Kavalekar said.
