PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana: Farmers alerts! How to register
Till date, around 3 crore farmers have been registered and getting benefits of the scheme, informed Niti Aayog member at core committee on agriculture.
The PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana is expected to help around 12 crore poor farmers in India, however, till date (as informed by the Niti Aayog's core committee on agriculture), the number of farmers getting registered for the scheme is near about 25 per cent of the total number of the targeted farmers. The major reason for this is lack of proper registration awareness among the farmers and strict regulation by the government so that it reached to the actual beneficiary for whom the scheme is meant for.
Speaking on the scheme Krishnveer Chaudhary, Member, Core Committee on Agriculture at Niti Aayog told Zee Business online, "Till date around 3 crore beneficiary farmers have been registered and getting benefits of the scheme." He said that the scheme has been launched and regulated in such a way that ensures about the benefits reaching to the actual beneficiary for whom this scheme is meant for. He said that for getting the benefit the farmers need to register themselves under the scheme by going to the website www.pmkisan.nic.in.
