Krishak Bandhu Scheme Ammount:
Now, the Chief Minister has made the decision to restart this Krishak Bandhu Scheme programme.
The announcement that the financial support provided by this programme will be increased was made on June 17.
In the past, farmers who owned at least one acre of land received Rs 5000 annually.
Farmers would now receive Rs 10,000 year, tripling the advantages.
Trinamool Congress pledged to double the WB Krishak Bandhu Scheme’s benefits in its electoral platform. Approximately 68 lakh farmers will profit from this programme.
Under the WB Krishak Bandhu scheme, financial support for small and marginal farmers would also be boosted.
Farmers who have less than one acre of cultivable land will receive Rs. 4000 annually rather than Rs. 2,000 on a pro rata basis.
The KrishakBandhu Scheme went into operation in 2018, and as of February, 1.5 billion rupees had been spent on its implementation.
A death payment of Rs 200000 would be given to a farmer under this programme if he or she passes away before reaching the age of 60.
The WB Krishak Bandhu scheme’s primary goal is to give West Bengal’s farmers financial support. The recipients of the programme will also receive cash help and a 2 lakh rupee life insurance policy. Farmers’ families will become financially independent with the aid of the government incentives, eliminating the need for them to rely on others for their needs.
The WB Krishak Bandhu initiative will assist farmers in improving their financial situation.

According to the plan, every beneficiary will receive a life insurance policy of Rs. 200000.
All farmers who pass away accidently while the programme is being implemented will receive insurance coverage.
