If the eKYC details are not completed then the government will not transfer Rs. 2000 (11 installment) in your bank account. It must be noted that a few months back the government had made eKYC mandatory for all the farmers but due to some reasons, things were put on hold.

According to media reports, all the farmer beneficiaries have been asked to complete the eKYC before 31 March 2022 so that the 11 installment can be transferred in their bank accounts.

If the eKYC details are not completed then the government may not send Rs. 2000 in your bank account. It must be noted that few months back the government had made eKYC mandatory for all the farmers but due to some reasons, things were put on hold. Now the eKYC link has been activated on the official website so that farmers can complete their details.  

Why is eKYC mandatory for PM Kisan Scheme

Last year, Modi government had made eKYC mandatory for all the farmers registered under Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana. The decision has been taken to prevent frauds/scams and ineligible people from taking the benefit of this scheme. The existing/old as well as new farmers must fill in the eKYC without any delay.
