Why does the money of PM Kisan Yojana not reach every farmer? Know the reason

PM Kisan

The government runs many schemes for the benefit of its citizens keeping in mind the needs of different sections of the society. Many of these schemes are designed for women, while others are specifically for the elderly. Since India is an agricultural country, the government places a lot of emphasis on the welfare of farmers.

To provide financial assistance to farmers, the government launched the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM-Kisan) scheme in 2019. Under this scheme, farmers get a direct benefit transfer of ₹ 6,000 annually to their bank accounts. However, not all farmers are eligible for this benefit. Some of the reasons for this are as follows:

Government job in the family

To get benefits under the PM-Kisan scheme, farmers must meet certain criteria set by the government. If a member of a farmer's family holds a government job, they are ineligible to receive an annual financial assistance of ₹ 6,000. This rule is one of the main reasons why some farmers are not able to avail the benefits of the scheme.

Farming on leased land

Many farmers in India do not own land and lease land for farming. The PM-KISAN scheme does not provide benefits to those who farm on rented land. Thus, farmers who do not own land are excluded from the scheme.

Lack of e-KYC

To receive the benefits, farmers must complete the e-KYC (Electronic Know Your Customer) process and verify the ownership of their land. Many farmers have not met these requirements, resulting in them being ineligible for the scheme. As a result, these administrative steps are crucial for farmers to receive the financial assistance promised by the scheme.
