If you are a beneficiary of PM Kisan scheme and waiting for the next installment then we have an important update for you. Officials of the agriculture department said that as many as 1 lakh farmers may be deprived of financial assistance this time.

The agriculture department of Andhra Pradesh informed that around 1 lakh beneficiaries in Prakasam district may not get Rs. 2000 under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana this time as they have not completed their eKYC. It is important to mention that the government had made eKYC compulsory for all the farmers.

Further, the agriculture department said that there are almost 3.18 lakh farmers in Prakasam district. Though all of them have completed their Aadhaar authentication process or the registration process for PM Kisan, only 2.2 lakh have finished the eKYC process as well.

Officials told the Centre has extended the deadline to complete the eKYC process four times still only 68% of the farmers have completed it till September 15.

Previously, the Centre had declared 31 July as the deadline, but after request from the State government as well as farmers’ associations, the last date to complete eKYC was extended three times & finalised to 18 September.

Agriculture Joint Director (JD-A), A Srinivasa Rao said now we have no information if the deadline for completing eKYC will be further extended.

Also, there are reports that out of the abovementioned 1 lakh farmers in the district who will not receive financial aid, around 35,000 could be ineligible as they might be paying Income Tax or have more than 1 beneficiary in the family, or have submitted the wrong documents. The remaining 65,000 are eligible, but their details are not known.

Reports further said that these farmers have not been living at their registered residential addresses and their mobile phone numbers are also not reachable.
