- On Monday, the Union Minister of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry & Dairying Parshottam Rupala virtually launched the ‘Nationwide AHDF KCC campaign’. The Kisan Credit Card (KCC) will be extended to all eligible animal husbandry, dairy and fishery farmers in India from November 15, 2021, to February 15, 2022. It is targeting to enroll approximately two crore people in these next three months.
- The Kisan Credit Card initiative dates back to the Budget 2018-19, when the government had announced extension of the KCC facility to animal husbandry farmers and fishermen to help them meet their working capital requirements. Addressing the event, the minister said the campaign aims to provide KCCs to all eligible animal husbandry, dairy and fishery farmers in the country and ensure that they get institutional credit. The Department of Animal Husbandry and Dairying, Department of Fisheries and Department of Financial Services are managing this initiative.
