The central government has launched this scheme to directly benefit farmers. With the implementation of this scheme, farmers won’t have to deal with middlemen anymore. Under this scheme, farmers will receive payments in installments over three years. The government has allocated 6,885 crores of rupees for this scheme, which will be expended by 2024.
