If you are a beneficiary of PM Kisan Yojana then we have an important update for you! According to latest media reports, the Centre will release the 12th installment of Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana soon, most probably before 15 September.

However, government has made it very clear that the 12th installment of Rs. 2000 will be transferred only to Aadhaar-seeded bank accounts of farmers.

Dr. Arun Kumar Mehta, Chief Secretary, Jammu & Kashmir during a meeting that was held to check the progress under various government schemes said that before transferring the money, the beneficiaries of PM Kisan Yojana will be verified through Aadhaar seeding & revenue record authentication.

In this regard, the Chief Secretary ordered the Deputy Commissioners of all districts to confirm uploading of the relevant revenue record, Aadhar-seeding of all beneficiary accounts, and completion of PM Kisan e-KYC formalities by Monday (5 September 2022).

He also asked them to pay special focus on identification and removal of ineligible beneficiaries as well as recovery of false claims.

Dr. Kumar also asked JK Bank to raise public awareness among the customers via text messages, especially regarding the upcoming installment of PM Kisan Yojana, which will be credited directly into the Aadhar-seeded bank accounts of farmers through DTB.

The Divisional Commissioners of both divisions will involve public representatives as well as concerned line departments in accelerating the collection of requisite scheme-related data.

In order to raise awareness on the compulsory Aadhar-seeding & authentication of beneficiaries under several government schemes, Dr. Kumar asked the Information Department to run advertisement campaigns in all vernacular newspapers.

PM Kisan Yojana: Congress Slams Modi Government

The Congress said that the Central government is issuing notices to farmers considered ineligible under the PM-Kisan yojana to take back the money given to them. 

It also asked the Centre to immediately stop the recovery from “poor annadaatas/poor farmers”.

Congress said that on one hand the government is “waiving lakhs of crores” worth of loans of its industrialist friends and on the other hand it is taking back money from poor farmers.
