Integration of schemes will increase farmers’ income: Meghwal

New Delhi, July 12 (IANS) Minister of State for Finance Arjun Ram Meghwal on Tuesday said interplay and integration of various banking and insurance schemes, including the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana, will increase farmers’ income.

“Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana is a revolutionary scheme… (but) all states have not implemented it yet. National Food Security Mission and Atal Pension Yojana are great schemes… (and) all schemes when integrated will increase farmers’ income,” Meghwal said.
