This time it is expected that the amount of this scheme will increase.
New Delhi. Now there is one hour left for the presentation of the budget (Budget 2023). Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will present the budget at 11 am. The Union Budget 2023-24 holds special significance because it will be the last full budget of the Narendra Modi government before the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Big announcements are expected for the farmers this time in the budget. It is believed that the amount given to the farmers under the Prime Minister Kisan Samman Nidhi Scheme may increase.
Till now 12 installments of this ambitious scheme of the Modi government have come into the accounts of the farmers. More than 8 crore farmers of the country had received the money for the 12th installment. Under PM Kisan Yojana (PM Kisan), 6 thousand rupees are given to the farmer every year. This money is given in three installments of two thousand each. In the last budget, in view of the discontent among the farmers due to the farmer’s movement and now in view of the elections being held in five states, it was expected that the amount of Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana would increase. But, no such announcement was made in the budget.

But, nothing was said in the budget about the important demands of the farmers.
