The last date to link Aadhaar Card with the central government’s ambitious ‘PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana’ is over but a large number of registered farmers are still left out from getting the full benefits of the scheme due to incorrect information. As per reports, a total of 39 percent of the registered farmers in the state of Uttar Pradesh have been left in the final list because of incorrect data. Not only UP, but this is also the scenario of almost all the major states of the country. Moreover, we can say that the promise to provide benefits to all the registered farmers under PM Kisan Yojana till 30th November has not been fulfilled by the government. On the other hand, there is a difference of 70 thousand between the registered farmers and the third installment list in the National Capital, say reports. 

According to PM Kisan Portal, out of the total beneficiary 1.79 lakh, around 1.60 lakh got the first installment till November 30. In this case, this difference is around 19 thousand. On the other hand, the second installment received by 1.46 lakh farmers while the difference increased to 33 thousand. As per reports, a total of 70 thousand farmers has not benefited from the third installment. Moreover, the department claims that 80 percent of the farmers' data has been improved, they will get benefits soon.

PM Kisan Yojana:

In November-2018, before the Lok Sabha elections, the Central Government announced the PM-Kisan. Under the scheme, farmers get three installments of two thousand rupees every year. This money goes directly to the accounts of the farmers. Its purpose is to help in purchasing fertilizer, seeds and agricultural equipment.

All Farmers will be Benefitted

CP Srivastava, Deputy Agricultural Director (Lucknow Division), states that all eligible farmers will soon get the benefit of Samman Nidhi.  More than 80 percent of the data has been sent to the Ministry, correcting the errors, say reports.

Base bank account error

According to the officials, farmers were included in the scheme without Aadhaar in the first phase. Many farmers gave the account number of KCC instead of their savings account while many others made two applications instead of one. The report claims that a total of 24,103 farmers' names were returned from PFMS while the names of 65 thousand farmers could not be matched with the name of Aadhaar.
