The agriculture sector has always been a major concern for the government, regardless of their political beliefs or mottos. Agriculture is the backbone of every economy and that’s why talking about the interest of farmers is an essential thing for any government.  And for this reason, the Indian government has always launched new schemes for the welfare and development of the farmers, growers, cattle rearers and other members of the farmer communities. They say if the farmers of the country are not happy, then the country also cannot be happy as they are the ones that feed a population of 130 billion people.  

Presently, the central and state governments are coming up with very beneficial schemes for the farmers in the country. Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana, Kisan Awas Yojana, Kisan Diesel Grant, Jal-Jeevan Hariyali, Krishi Mashinikaran Yojana, Organic Farming Grant, Agricultural Input Grant, and the list goes on. Under all these schemes, the government provides farmers with some assistance, which is called subsidy or grant. 

How do farmers avail grants? 

To know how they can take advantage of any scheme offered by the government, farmers must go to the website related to the subsidy and apply online or offline. The application form may ask farmers about the information that could make him/her an eligible candidate for availing the scheme. Under all these schemes, the farmer must give his/her bank account information so that the government can provide assistance amount or subsidy through direct benefit transfer to this account. 

How to know if your Bank Account is linked to Aadhaar 

If the applicant's bank account is not linked to the Aadhaar issued by the government, then that applicant will not be able to avail of the benefits of subsidy. If your Aadhar is linked to your bank account, only then the subsidy could be sent through direct benefit. The applicant should know before applying the inquiry whether his bank account is linked to Aadhar or not. If you also want to know whether your bank account is linked to Aadhaar or not, then you can know by visiting this link: https://resident.uidai.gov.in/bank-mapper
