According to various media reports, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will most probably release the 13th installment of Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana before Holi, i.e. March 8. However, no official announcement has been made regarding this.

e-KYC Compulsory for 13th Installment

If you are also a beneficiary of PM Kisan Yojana and have not done your e-KYC till now, then the 13th installment will not come in your account. Therefore, you should get your e-KYC done as soon as possible. The e-KYC can be updated online (official website) as well as offline (Common Service Centre). The government has made it very clear that farmers who will not complete their e-KYC will be deprived of the benefits of the 13th installment.

Recently, the Government said that as there were many duplicate entries in the list of PM Kisan beneficiaries, they had to be weeded out. The statement comes after strong opposition from farmers as well as Opposition leaders over reduction in allocation of funds for the scheme.

The Centre clarified that every eligible beneficiary of PM Kisan Samman Nidhi will continue to get benefits of the scheme and hence virtually there is no cut in the budget.

How to update/complete e-KYC

Visit the official website of PM Kisan Yojana 

Click on the option that reads e-KYC on the right side of the website.

Enter your Aadhaar number.

Enter the OTP received on your registered mobile number.

After that click on 'Submit'.

Your e-KYC is done.

Under PM Kisan Yojana, a total of Rs 6,000 is given to farmers in three installments of Rs 2000 in a year.

The first installment is given in between April 1 to July 31, while the second installment is transferred from August 1 to November 30.  The third installment comes between December 1 and March 31. Hence its is claimed that the 13th installment of PM Kisan will come in the account of farmers either by the end of February or in the first week of March.
