kerala Farmer Pension Scheme Application Form in Malayalam
The Kerala Assembly on Thursday has passed a new law to create farmers’ welfare boards in the state. The board, first of its kind in any Indian state, is aimed at improving the quality of life of the farmers and ensuring better financial stability.
The bill proposes to set up a farmer’s welfare board which will ensure attractive financial benefits and monthly pension to the farmers. Each farmer who possesses a maximum of 15 acres of land or who is farming on lease land up to 15 acres is entitled to get the benefits of the welfare board.
Every farmer, above the age of 18 can contribute a minimum of Rs 100 per month to the scheme. The government will make a contribution of the same amount or a maximum of Rs 250 for each farmer as part of the scheme. If a farmer continuously contributes for a minimum of five years, the farmer will be entitled to a lifetime pension after the age of 60.
The pension amount will be determined based on the contribution and number of years. A farmer who has contributed to the scheme for 25 years will get a one-time payment based on his contribution to the scheme. Women farmers or daughters of registered farmers will get financial support for marriage, education, and maternity.
