Ranchi: Launching 'Pradhan Mantri Kisan Mandhan Yojana' from poll-bound Jharkhand, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday that every farmer will get Rs 3,000 per month after attaining the age of 60.

PM Modi also launched the 'Pradhan Mantri Laghu Vyaparik Mandhan Yojana' and 'Swarojgar' pension schemes and inaugurated the new building of the Jharkhand Assembly and a multi-modal terminal at Sahibganj.

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, Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das said.

The chief minister also said the prime minister will lay the foundation stones online for 462 Eklavya Model Schools across the country, of which 69 will be established in 13 of Jharkhand's 24 districts.

He will also lay the foundation stone for a new building of Jharkhand Secretariat. "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.
