On the instructions of DM Indra Vikram Singh, the officials are rapidly promoting the scheme.
To avail the benefits of Kisan Samman Nidhi, farmers will have to compulsorily complete their e-KYC. Only after the online process of e-KYC is completed, the 13th installment of Kisan Samman Nidhi will be sent to the farmers’ accounts. They are also being made aware for this.
Deputy Agriculture Director Yashpal Singh said that under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana, farmers will be given the 13th installment of Kisan Samman Nidhi from December 2022 to March 2023. For this, the process of e-KYC is being completed for all. Without completing the process, the amount of Samman Nidhi will not be sent.
E-KYC can also be done from public service center
The Deputy Director informed that there are 3,77,095 active farmers in the district, all of whom are to be given the benefit of the Kisan Samman Nidhi. Out of this, 2,46,893 farmers have completed their e-KYC process. At the same time, e-KYC of 1,30,202 farmers is yet to be done.
He told that those farmers who have not done e-KYC yet, can complete the process by submitting all their documents at CSC and Jan Seva Kendra. That’s why all the farmers should complete this process as soon as possible, so that they can get the benefit of Samman Nidhi on time.
