PM Kisan Samman Scheme Apply Online: The government had announced PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Scheme for farmers in 2019, which the government has continued in its second term. Let us tell you what this scheme is and how to get its benefits.
PM Kisan Samman Scheme
All the farmers of the country will get the benefit of the Kisan Samman Nidhi scheme irrespective of their landholdings. Under this scheme, the government will deposit 6,000 rupees annually in the account of the farmers. These 6,000 will be deposited in the farmers’ account in three installments. This scheme will benefit 14.5 crore farmers in the country.
The decision to give benefits of this scheme to all farmers was made in the first cabinet meeting of the new NDA government held on 31 May 2019. Earlier, only farmers with less than 5 acres of land were kept under this scheme. But now this limit has been lifted. The BJP had promised this in the manifesto of the Lok Sabha elections.
Who will not get the benefit of this scheme:
Those who will not get the benefit of this scheme include institutional landholders, farmer families holding constitutional posts, serving or retired officers. Employees of state / central government, as well as PSUs and government autonomous bodies, are included. Doctors, engineers and lawyers as well as retired pensioners with monthly pension of more than Rs 10,000 and professionals paying income tax in the last assessment year are also excluded from the scheme.
Documents needed to avail of the scheme
The two most important documents for this are Khasra and Khatauni. That is revenue records, which will show that you are a farmer. Patwari makes these Khasra and Khatauni documents.
Khasra- It contains complete information about cultivated land. This makes it completely clear what is happening on the land and how useful it is for agriculture or it is not in the middle of the population.
Khatauni- Another important document is Khatauni. In this, the name of the land is fully known. If the land is in the name of more than one, then a share certificate has to be made for it. This certificate is signed by the Tehsildar.
Aadhaar card- Aadhaar card is the identity of an Indian citizen. Under this scheme, to get 6 thousand rupees per annum, it is necessary to give an Aadhaar card.
Bank account number- You must have a bank account number to get the installment of the scheme because the government is transferring money to farmers through DBT.
