The due date or last date to complete the eKYC for the PM Kisan Scheme is nearing. Here is how you can do it online.
It is mandatory for the registered Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM-KISAN) Scheme beneficiaries to complete the eKYC process. The last date to do the same is nearing. It can be noted that PM Kisan Scheme beneficiaries need to complete the KYC process by July 31, 2022. According to the information provided on the PM Kisan Portal “eKYC is MANDATORY for PMKISAN Registered Farmers. OTP Based eKYC is available on PMKISAN Portal or nearest CSC centres may be contacted for Biometric based eKYC. Deadline of eKYC for all the PMKISAN beneficiaries has been extended till 31st July 2022."
In case you miss the chance to make PM Kisan account KYC compliance, you may not be able to receive the next PM Kisan installment in your bank account. Therefore it is advised to get the eKYC as early as possible so that you do not have any issues in receiving the PM Kisan 12 installment in your bank accounts. It can be known that the 11th installment of the PM Kisan scheme was released by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on May 31, 2022, by fixing an amount of around Rs. 21,000 crore for 10 Crore farmers.
With the help of the PM Kisan scheme, the central government tends to provide income support to all landholding farmers' families in the country. An annual financial benefit of Rs. 6,000 is being provided to eligible beneficiary farmer families under the scheme. The amount is credited directly to the bank account of the farmers in three equal installments of ₹2,000 each, every 4th month. If you have not yet done the PM Kisan eKYC, here are the steps you need to follow.
