Prime Minister Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana was started by the Modi Government keeping in mind the small and marginal farmers of the country. Under this scheme, the government provides financial assistance of Rs 6,000 to the farmers in three instalments in a year. An amount of Rs 2,000 is transferred in the account of farmers after every four months. So far, money has been sent to the farmers’ account in eight instalments. The eligible farmers have to register on the official website (https://pmksan.gov.in/) to get the benefits of the scheme.
Farmers who want to register for the scheme should have their Aadhar card linked with the bank account. However, this condition is not applicable for farmers in Assam, Meghalaya, Jammu and Kashmir. Under PM Kisan Yojana, only those farmers who have 2 hectares i.e. 5 acres of agriculture land in their names will get this benefit.
Documents needed for registration
Documents related to agricultural land, an Aadhar card, bank account, address proof and a passport size photograph are required for registration.
