PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojna: After exempting the mandatory Aadhaar Card for Indian farmers to get Rs 6,000 annual subsidy, around 3.31 crore out of 7.48 crore enrolled Indian farmers have received their third installment. This has happened even after extending the Aadhaar Card requirement from the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi beneficiary farmers.
Speaking on the matter a senior Agriculture Ministry official said that Aadhaar Card mandatory requirement from the farmers has been extended to November 30. An announcement in this regard has been already done by the ministry and concerned district agriculture departments on October 9th. So, after 30th November 2019, only those farmers enrolled with PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojna will be eligible for the subsidy who have linked their beneficiary bank account with their Aadhaar Card. The official said that after the announcement in regard to Aadhaar Card, the beneficiary farmers have started to receive their subsidy. But, those farmers who have a mismatch of names with their bank account and their original name mentioned as a beneficiary farmer, mismatch of names in two documents produced for various purposes etc.
