By using the Kisan Credit Card, farmers can get loans at low interest rates. For this, they will have to go to the bank and submit the documents given here. The government has run various schemes to help the farmers. Lakhs of farmers across India are also getting benefits from the support of these schemes. Kisan Credit Card Scheme is being run so that the farmers do not have to face financial problems during agriculture. Under the scheme, a loan facility is also being provided to the farmers.

For your information, let us tell you that earlier there was a provision to provide benefits under the scheme only to farmers doing farming. But, at present, farmers engaged in fish farming and animal husbandry are also being given benefits under this scheme. Apart from crop management, farmers can also take loans for dairy work and purchase pump sets, etc. Under this scheme, the government has made arrangements so that there is not much interest pressure on the farmers. Due to an increase in interest, the cost of farming also increases, due to which farmers get trapped in the burden of debt. To save the farmers from this, much less interest is charged on KCC than the regular loans of banks.

Documents required for the agricultural loan at low interest.

Farmers, if you want to take an agricultural loan at low interest, then you need to have identity proof such as a voter ID card, driver's license, Aadhar card, PAN card, etc. Along with this, it is also very important to have land documents and a passport-size photograph of the applicant.
