No idea of increasing the amount under PM Kisan.
The Agriculture Minister said this on behalf of the Central Government.
The government gives this financial help in 3 installments every year.
New Delhi. The Central Government has told in Parliament that there is currently no plan to increase the amount of assistance under the Pradhan Mantri Kisa Samman Nidhi (PM-KISAN). The center provides financial assistance of Rs 6,000 every year to eligible farmers. This help is given in installments of Rs 2000-2000 every four months. This scheme was started by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in February 2019. However, it was considered effective only from December 2018.
When the question was asked in Parliament whether there is any proposal to increase the amount under the Prime Minister’s Kisan Samman Nidhi, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said, “At present there is no such proposal.” Till now 12 installments of Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana have been deposited in the accounts of the farmers. Since the inception of this scheme, there have been many changes in the rules of the scheme.

how much has been spent so far
Till January 30, 2023, a total amount of Rs 2.24 lakh crore has been transferred by the government to the farmers’ account. This help is given to the farmers in the form of help in completing agriculture and related works. Let us tell you that PM Kisan is a scheme completely run by the central government, in which all the money goes only from the center. State Governments and Union Territories Management provide the list of eligible farmers to the Central Government. Significantly, to become the beneficiary of this scheme, farmers have to fulfill certain conditions.
e-KYC is also mandatory
Farmers can complete KYC for PM Kisan in two ways. The KYC process can be completed online from the comfort of your home through the official website of PM Kisan. Apart from this, farmers can also get their KYC done by visiting their nearest Common Service Center (CSC). The point to note is that if the farmer himself does e-KYC through OTP, then you will not have to pay any money, whereas if you go to the Common Service Center and get e-KYC done, then he will have to spend a few rupees for it.
