The Scheme is being implemented through an Aadhaar linked electronic database containing details of all members of the families of the farmers whose names appear in the land records.
New Farmer Registration:
New Farmer Registration is an option provided under the Farmers Corner of the PM Kisan Portal. Using this, new farmers can register themselves under the scheme and can avail the benefits provided.
Farmers who have not yet registered but want to register for the scheme can do so by visiting the PM-KISAN web-portal at www.pmkisan.gov.in. They will have to click on the option saying 'New farmer Registration' available under the Farmers Corner.
The online Form has certain mandatory fields as well as self-declaration regarding 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.
