PM KISAN: Instalment DISCONTINUED? Check THIS process to get Pradhan Mantri Kisan 9th Instalment
The PM KISAN scheme provides minimum income support up to Rs 6,000 to farmers across the country.
Pradhan Mantri Kisan 9th Instalment news: The PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana is a government scheme with 100 per cent funding from the Central government. The scheme promises income support of Rs 6,000 per year in three equal instalments to small and marginal farmer families, having combined landholding/ownership of up to 2 hectares.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi released the 9th instalment of PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana. Over Rs 19,500 crore was transferred directly into the accounts of more than 9.75 crore beneficiary farmer families last month.
The fund will be directly transferred to the bank accounts of the beneficiaries. There are various exclusion categories for the scheme. Farmers can check their status on pm kisan online portal www-pmkisan-gov-in or via the mobile app. For any query, farmers can use this PM-Kisan Helpline number 155261 / 011-24300606.
The beneficiaries, whose names are uploaded on the PM-Kisan portal by the concerned State / UT Governments in a particular 4-monthly period, shall be entitled to receive the benefit for that period with the effect from that 4-monthly period itself. lf they do not receive the payment of instalment pertaining to that 4-monthly period and subsequent instalments for any reason, except due to rejection for falling within the exclusion criteria, they are entitled to receive the benefits of all the due instalments as and when the cause of delay is removed / resolved.
For example, if an eligible farmer's name has been uploaded on the PM-KISAN portal by the State / UT Government during the 4-monthly period of December 2018 - March 2019, he/she is entitled to get the instalment pertaining to December 2018 - March 2019 period, and also all subsequent instalments. Further, if the eligible farmer's name is uploaded on the PM-KISAN portal during the 4-monthly period of April-July 2019, he/she is entitled to get the instalment pertaining to April-July 2019 period and also all subsequent instalments.
Many beneficiaries, who have received instalments pertaining to December 2018 -March 2019 period and April-July 2019 period were not able to receive the instalment pertaining to August-November 2019 period. The reason for this delay was the mandatory requirement of the release of all instalments pertaining to the 4-monthly period August-November 2019 and onwards only on the basis of the Aadhaar seeded data of beneficiaries.
This work of Aadhaar seeding of data of beneficiaries had not been completed by many State / UT Governments. Therefore, the Central Government relaxed this mandatory requirement till 30th November 2019. The State / UT Governments are required to complete the work of the Aadhaar seeding of 100 per cent beneficiaries by 30th November 2019, so that the beneficiaries are able to receive the instalment pertaining to the 4-monthly period of December 2019 - March 2020, and all subsequent instalments.
