Prime Minister Narendra Modi will dedicate ‘Pradhan Mantri Kisan Mandhan Yojana’ to the nation from here on Thursday. He will also launch the ‘Pradhan Mantri Laghu Vyaparik Mandhan Yojana’ and ‘Swarojgar’ pension schemes. The prime minister will also inaugurate the new building of the Jharkhand Assembly and a multi-modal terminal at Sahibganj, Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das said on Tuesday.

The multi-modal terminal was built by Inland Waterways Authority of India on River Ganga at Sahibganj. It will have a cargo storing capacity of 30 tonne per year, a stockyard and parking and berthing space for two vessels, he said. Direct and indirect employment for the local people will be generated in the multi-modal terminal, Das said.

“Monthly pension under ‘Pradhan Mantri Kisan Mandhan Yojana’ is being introduced as a social security to farmers. Agriculturalists between 18 and 40 years of age can register themselves under the scheme. They will get Rs 3,000 pension per month after reaching 60 years of age,” Das said. A total 1,16,183 farmers in Jharkhand have registered themselves under the scheme so far, he said.

The chief minister said under the ‘Pradhan Mantri Laghu Vyaparik Mandhan Yojana’ and ‘Swarojgar’ pension schemes, beneficiaries between 18 and 40 years will get Rs 3,000 per month after completing 60 years of age. The Prime Minister had in September last year launched the ‘Ayushman Bharat’ health scheme from Ranchi.
