PM-KISAN scheme: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced the release of the 11th instalment of PM Kisan Scheme financial assistance under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi scheme.
At an event marking the eighth anniversary of the BJP government at the Centre, Prime Minister Narendra Modi virtually engaged with beneficiaries of several government initiatives. Ridge Maidan in Shimla hosted the event.
The 11th instalment of financial benefits under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM-KISAN) initiative was also released by the Prime Minister. This will allow a sum of over 21,000 crore to be transferred to over 10 crore beneficiary farming families. On this occasion, the Prime Minister will meet with beneficiaries of the (PM-KISAN) programme from across the country.
The freewheeling engagement, which is taking place across the country, aims to obtain open and honest input from the public, as well as to better understand the impact of welfare systems on people’s lives and to investigate convergence and saturation in relation to various government programmes.
The goal is to increase the reach and efficiency of government programmes in order to improve the country’s residents’ quality of life.
PM Modi landed in Shimla today for a roadshow and to attend a rally at the Ridge Maidan to commemorate his government’s ninth anniversary. On the way to Ridge Maidan in Shimla, people showered flower petals on PM Modi’s cavalcade.
The Himachal Pradesh Assembly election is set to take place later this year.
Modi last visited Himachal Pradesh on December 27 to speak at a rally in Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur’s home district of Mandi to commemorate the BJP’s fourth year in power in the state.
