The anticipation is growing for over 8 crore farmers in India as they await the 15th installment of the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi, a financial assistance scheme provided by the Central Government. Diwali, which falls on the 12th of November this year, is the time when farmers hope to receive this much-awaited installment. Just as in previous years, the Modi government is keen on disbursing the funds into the farmers’ accounts before the festival of lights. The 14th installment was released in July, but as with every disbursement, there are concerns that some eligible farmers might miss out.
The Account Linking Requirement
The government has previously made it clear that funds will not be credited to the accounts of those farmers whose bank accounts are not linked through various government portals. Under the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi scheme, eligible farmers receive an annual financial support of INR 6000, divided into three installments of INR 2000 each every four months. Recent reports suggest that even some previously ineligible farmers are now benefiting from the scheme, thanks to the initiation of the verification process known as e-KYC.
The verification process involves the validation of land records and linking them with Aadhar, which is an essential requirement. Despite beginning several years ago, the e-KYC process hasn’t yet been completed for all farmers, leaving some of them without access to the scheme’s benefits. If you haven’t completed your e-KYC yet, here’s how you can do it:
How to Complete the e-KYC Process
- Visit the official PM Kisan Yojana website.
- Navigate to the ‘e-KYC’ option under the ‘Form Corner.’
- Enter your Aadhar number and the requested information.
- Submit the OTP received on your registered mobile number.
Completing the e-KYC process will ensure that you receive your PM Kisan Samman Nidhi installments without any hindrance. It’s a straightforward procedure that ensures you get the financial support you deserve as a farmer.
The 15th installment of the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi scheme is eagerly awaited by millions of farmers in India, and the government’s initiative to disburse the funds before Diwali is commendable. However, it’s essential for farmers to ensure that their bank accounts are linked, and their e-KYC is complete to avoid missing out on the benefits.
