The Central Government has launched the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana, popularly known as PM Kisan scheme for the economically weaker farmers in the country. To take the benefit of PM-Kisan scheme, as many as 9 crore farmers have registered themselves, while the government aims to connect 14.5 crore farmers in the country. Under this scheme, every year Rs. 6000 is being deposited in the bank accounts of every small and marginal farmer by the Central government. This amount is being deposited in three equal instalments of Rs. 2000 each.

As per the rules and norms set by the government, there are many farmers who are not eligible for this government scheme. In such a situation, it is very important to know all the conditions before applying to take benefit of PM-Kisan scheme, because giving wrong information can lead to severe action along with penalty.

According to the official website of PM Kisan scheme, if a farmer takes advantage of this scheme by giving wrong information and is caught later then the amount transferred to his bank account will be withdrawn immediately. After this, he will also face legal action on the charges of fraud.
