According to the PM Kisan Udan Yojana, farmers can export agricultural goods both domestically and globally. However there is no tax that is charged to farmers. Most of the transportation work is also tax free. This is completely similar to a Kisan rail wherein train transportation is used to supply fruits, vegetables, dairy products all over India. For assistance with agriculture related work the Central Government has launched various farming schemes for the farmers. Under the schemes, farmers are being provided subsidies, loans and facilities like insurances  so that they can do farming more effectively .As we all know in farming for farmers what matters the most is the yield that they get.


For farmers, everything is dependent on the output crop. If the crop is sadly damaged, farmers experience a lot of losses, especially crops that are destroyed shortly after they are harvested. To address this problem Central Government has launched a special scheme. Under the scheme farmers are being provided with the facility of air transportation to transport their agricultural produce. Yes we are talking about the PM Kisan Udan Yojana or Krishi Udaan Yojana.


What is Kisan Udaan Yojana?

 Under the scheme farmers can export their agricultural produce domestically as well as globally. They are not supposed to be charged with any cost as even the transportation is also mostly tax free. This is completely similar to a Kissan rail wherein train transportation is used to supply fruits, vegetables, dairy products all over India. However under the Krishi udaan Yojana, generally ,perishable and underprivileged farmer’s products are only exported. Already more than 50 airports are linked with the scheme for air transportation of the products.

Any farmer from the country can be benefitted from the scheme . After 2020 itself 53 airports are linked through the scheme. The scheme primarily focuses on the transportation of agricultural products from hilly regions, north-eastern states, and tribal areas. Because road transport is extremely difficult in these regions. The products also get damaged due to lack of timely reach to the markets. Thus, by using Krishi Udaan's services, this task is completed in a matter of hours.
