Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana: The Modi government had disbursed the 9th installment of PM Kisan in the accounts of more than 10 crore on 9th August 2021. Meanwhile, the data given on PM Kisan website till 31 August shows that the installment of more than 2 crore farmers is still pending. Know why the payment of 2 crore farmers has been stopped.

Why Government has stopped Payment?

It is important to mention that some fake farmers were taking advantage of PM Kisan scheme in many states and when the government came to know about the fraud it started collecting money from such beneficiaries.

Sources said that farmers paying income tax in Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh were taking benefit of PM Kisan Yojana. Now the government has recovered all the money from them.

Sources also said that due to the fear of recovery, farmers who did fake registrations in the states have withdrawn their names. At the same time names of many farmers have been removed from the official website due to wrong data/information. Recently, the Agriculture Minister himself had told the Lok Sabha more than 42 lakh ineligible farmers across the country are taking benefits of PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana.
