PM Kisan eKYC deadline extended: Check last date and process to complete e-KYC

The central government has extended the deadline for completing the mandatory eKYC for Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana (PM-KISAN) to May 31, 2022, the old scheduled deadline was March 22, 2022, which is excellent news for farmers.

PM Kisan is a central government initiative which provides enrolled farmers with annual income assistance of 6,000/- in three equal installments. Farmers, on the other hand, must complete their KYC task in order to obtain the monetary benefit of the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana (PM-KISAN).

Following completion of the mandatory eKYC work, all landholding farmers’ families would be eligible for a financial benefit of Rs.6000 per year per family, payable in three equal instalments of Rs.2000 each in four months. The scheme is open to all landholding farmers’ families that have a cultivable landholding in their names and have completed the requisite KYC job. Aadhaar and bank account details are required to complete the necessary eKYC seeding.

PM Kisan official portal says “the beneficiaries are required to provide their bank account details along with their Aadhaar number so as to credit the financial benefit under the scheme directly into their bank accounts. No benefit can be given if bank account details have not been provided.”

“For availing benefits under the scheme, Aadhaar is mandatory. However, in cases, where the beneficiaries at present are not having Aadhar or Aadhar Enrollment number, alternate prescribed documents can be collected for identity verification and transfer of benefit to such farmer families for transfer of 1st installment. All such beneficiaries not having Aadhaar card shall have to be compulsorily enrolled under Aadhaar, since transfer of subsequent installments will be done only on basis of Aadhaar seeded data base,” according to the official website.
