Another official said that “Farmers registered under the scheme must get their e-KYC done before 31 May 2022, failing which they will not get the next instalment under the scheme”. He told that despite the fact that the Agri Department had started a state-wide drive asking farmers to update their e-KYC, it is a difficult task as only 28 lakh farmers (out of 2.60 crores) registered under the scheme had completed the e-KYC till last month.

He said that “The idea behind the e-KYC is to ensure that only farmers eligible get benefits of the scheme”.

The official also said, “A majority of farmers in the state would have been deprived of the next installment that may be released any day in April, had the government not extended the deadline for completing e-KYC”.

Under PM-Kisan scheme that was launched in the year 2019, eligible farmers regardless of the size of their landholdings receive financial assistance of Rs. 6,000 annually in three equal instalments of Rs. 2000 each. The money is sent directly to the beneficiaries bank accounts.
