About PM Kisan Samman Nidhi

PM Kisan Samman Nidhi is a flagship initiative by the Government of India aimed at providing direct income support to small and marginal farmers across the country, irrespective of their CIBIL Score. Launched in February 2019, the scheme aims to supplement the financial needs of farmers by providing them with income support of Rs. 6,000 per year in three equal instalments. The primary objective of PM Kisan Samman Nidhi is to ensure financial stability and improve the livelihoods of farmers, particularly those who own less than 2 hectares of cultivable land, regardless of their CIBIL Score.

Under the scheme, the financial assistance is directly transferred to the bank accounts of eligible beneficiaries through Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT). The scheme intends to alleviate the economic distress faced by farmers, enhance their purchasing power, and encourage them to adopt modern agricultural practices. Additionally, PM Kisan Samman Nidhi promotes inclusivity by covering farmers from all states and union territories without any discrimination.

Overall, PM Kisan Samman Nidhi plays a crucial role in supporting the agricultural community and contributing to the socio-economic development of rural areas by ensuring a steady income flow to farmers.

PM Kisan KYC

PM Kisan KYC, or Know Your Customer, is an essential process in the PM Kisan scheme aimed at ensuring that the benefits reach the rightful beneficiaries directly into their Aadhaar-seeded bank accounts, thus eliminating middlemen. There are three modes of eKYC available for farmers under the PM Kisan scheme.

  • OTP Based eKYC
    This allows farmers to complete the process through the PM Kisan portal or mobile app. They need to enter their Aadhaar number and complete the eKYC by submitting the OTP received on their Aadhaar-linked mobile number.
  • Biometric-based eKYC
    This is facilitated through Common Service Centres (CSCs) and State Seva Kendras (SSKs). Farmers can visit their nearest CSC/SSK with their Aadhaar Card and mobile number linked to Aadhaar for biometric authentication.

Face authentication-based eKYC

This offers a convenient method for farmers to complete the process using their mobile phones. By downloading the PM Kisan mobile app and Aadhaar Face RD app, farmers can scan their face and complete the eKYC after entering their Aadhaar number and providing consent.

After completing eKYC through any mode, the status is reflected in the beneficiary status after 24 hours. Farmers can also access their status through the KYS module on the PM Kisan portal or Kisan eMitra (PM Kisan AI Chatbot).

This multi-mode eKYC approach ensures accessibility and convenience for farmers across the country, facilitating the seamless distribution of PM Kisan benefits while maintaining transparency and accountability.
