About Krishak Bandhu Scheme 2024

The Krishak Bandhu Scheme was launched by the Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee in the year 2019. The aim behind launching this scheme was to provide monetary support to all the farmers of the state. This scheme was re-launched on 17th June 2021 by the Chief Minister itself. And this time the financial assistance has been doubled.

Previously when the scheme has launched the farmers used to get Rs. 5,000 for the landholding of one acre or more every year. In 2021 when the scheme was relaunched increased financial support to all the farmers would be provided. This means now they’ll get Rs. 10,000 for the landholding of one acre or more of cultivable land every year.

All those farmers who have land below one acre would get Rs. 4,000 instead of Rs. 2,000 per year. And under the Krishak Bandhu Scheme if any farmer dies within the age limit of 60 years then that farmer would also be provided a death benefit of Rs. 2,00,000.
