PM KISAN is a government scheme with 100 per cent funding from the Government of India. Started in December 1, 2018, the scheme promises an income support of Rs 6,000 per year in three equal installments to small and marginal farmer families, having combined land holding/ownership of up to 2 hectares.

 

Aadhaar number was optional and not mandatory for release of 1st installment pertaining to the period 01.12.2018 to 31.03.2019, whereas only possession of Aadhaar number was made mandatory for release of 2nd installment pertaining to the period 01 .04.2019 to 31 .07.2019. Further, Aadhaar seeding of beneficiaries’ data was made mandatory for release of 3rd installment pertaining to the period 01.08.2019, and for subsequent installments onwards.

 

However, the government has relaxed the mandatory requirement of Aadhaar seeding of beneficiaries’ data up to 30.11.2019. This mandatory requirement of Aadhaar seeding of the beneficiaries’ data would continue to applicable for release of all installments w.e.f . 01.12.2019. However, Assam, Meghalaya and Jammu & Kashmir, where Aadhaar penetration has not been much, have been given exemption from this mandatory requirement till 31.03.2020.

 

To avail the 10th instalment, all such farmer families whose names are not included in the list of beneficiaries can approach the District Level Grievance Redressal Monitoring Committee in their Districts for inclusion of their names in the beneficiary list.

 

Further, the Government has created an exclusive Farmers’ Corner in the PM-KISAN web-portal www.pmkisan.gov.in giving the following facilities to the farmers through three separate options / links:

 

New Farmer’s Registration – Through this link, the farmers can submit their details online. The online Form has certain mandatory fields as well self-declaration regarding the eligibility. Once the Form is filled in and submitted successfully by the farmer, the same is forwarded by an automated process to the State Nodal Officer (SNO) for verification.

 

The SNO verifies the details filled in by the farmer and uploads the verified data on the PM-KISAN portal. Thereafter the data is processed through an established system for payment.

 

Editing Aadhaar details, through this link the farmer can edit his/ her name himself/ herself as per details in the Aadhaar Card. The edited name then gets updated after authentication through the system.

 

Beneficiary Status, through this link, by quoting their Aadhaar Number or Bank Account Number or the registered Mobile Number, the beneficiaries can themselves ascertain the status of payment of their installments.

 

Under the Scheme, a direct payment of Rs 6,000 per year will be transferred in three equal installments of Rs 2,000 every four months into the bank accounts of eligible landholding families. Farmers can check their status on pm kisan online portal www.pmkisan.gov.in or via the mobile app
