Haryana Kisan Pension 2019 for Farmers
After the second meeting of the committee constituted by the Haryana govt. to formulate the pension scheme for farmers in Haryana, the state govt. has decided to rollout Kisan Pension Scheme 2019 for Farmers. The issues related to age limit, amount of pension, number of farmers to be covered under the Kisan Pension Yojana were discussed at the meeting. Earlier, the 1st meeting of the committee was held last month on 27 December 2018.
In the 2nd meeting, it is decided that the committee is going to submit its report to the CM very shortly. It was informed that the deputy commissioners of all the districts have been directed to send the data of the farmers within 10 days. After report submission on Kisan Pension Scheme 2019, committee can take further action on the basis of collected data.
This decision to implement pension scheme for farmers comes after the newly elected governments in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh have announced Farm Loan Waiver Scheme. After such big step towards welfare of farmers, the state govt. is under big pressure to make big announcement for farmers of Haryana.
