He said that along with the production of agriculture, animal husbandry and promoting milk production is very important for the prosperity of farmers. With the help of Pashu Kisan Credit Card, a farmer can easily raise cows, buffaloes, sheep, goats, pigs, etc. in his home or field. He said that for this, a loan of up to Rs. 3 lakh is given and a subsidy of three percent interest is also given on its repayment on time.
