As a part of fulfilling the poll promises, Andhra Pradesh CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has come up with YSR Raithu Bharosa under the PM Kisan Yojana. From the reports, it was known that Jagan’s new scheme promises the amount of Rs 13,500 in three phases as the mark of the input subsidy for the farmers.
On the whole, the total amount each eligible farmer gets is Rs 67,5000. This would be surely a big financial assistance for the farmers. CM Jagan has started the scheme on the occasion of World Food Day at the Kakuturu Village, Nellore district.
During the scheme launch, YS Jagan said that earlier the amount was finalized for Rs 50,000 but, after having the discussion with farmers during his Padayatra times, he came to a conclusion to hype the amount which is now finalized to Rs 67,500. He further added saying, the scheme will benefit 54 lakh farmers of the state and it was designed for the time span of 4 years which was scheduled to begin in May 2020 but, it was altered to launch this month itself and also time span too extended for five years.
