To get the benefit under Kisan yojana, Adhaar is a mandatory document. Here I’m providing some information related to Adhaar mentioned in PMKisanSamman Nidhi Information page.
- 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 in 2018-19.
- All such beneficiaries not having Aadhaar card shall have to be compulsorily enrolled under Aadhaar since the transfer of subsequent installments will be done only on basis of Aadhaar seeded database.
- States/UTs to ensure that there is no duplication of the payment transferred to eligible families. Speedy reconciliation in case of wrong/incomplete bank details of the beneficiary to be ensured.
More than 12 crore farmer families will get the benefits under the PM-KISAN SAMMAN NIDHI SCHEME. This scheme is active from December 1st, 2018.
