Mamata Banerjee – Chief Minister, West Bengal:
I am happy to announce that Govt. of West Bengal is relaunching the Krishak Bandhu Scheme by doubling the annual financial support for all farmers & share-croppers.
Farmers will now receive an increased financial support from ₹5,000 to ₹10,000 for one acre or more of cultivable land.
Additionally, those having less than one acre of cultivable land will now receive a minimum of ₹4,000 per annum, on a pro-rata basis.
I assure everyone that Govt. of West Bengal is working round the clock to deliver all the promises of our 10 Ongikars.
