Now farmers will get information about various schemes through call centre
Millions of farmers in the country cannot read, but they want to know about various government schemes. For their convenience, the government is going to start a call centre. All information will be made available to the farmers after calling the PM Kisan Call Center.
The Central Government has launched the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Yojana this year. There is not enough information available to farmers about this scheme. The objective behind the creation of this call center is to provide correct information about the scheme to the farmers. According to this scheme, farmers will be given Rs 6000 in instalments of two thousand rupees a year.
Currently, a helpline number has been provided for the farmers. However, farmers have complained from time to time that it is not providing enough information. For this reason, the officials of the Agriculture Department said that efforts are being made to start a 24-hour call center.
These call centres will be available in many languages. Also, care will be taken that it is not misused. The details of the scheme will be available only after providing the appropriate bank account number and Aadhaar number from the registered mobile number of the farmers.
