E-KYC is mandatory for the farmers taking advantage of the Prime Minister Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM Kisan). The process of e-KYC is going on for months. According to the Ministry of Agriculture, most of the farmers registered under PM Kisan have got this work done. However, there are still some farmers left. They should also get e-KYC done soon. Keeping this in mind, the Ministry of Agriculture has once again extended the last date for conducting e-KYC. Farmers can now get this work done till August 15. Farmers can complete this process by themselves and through biometric authentication process by visiting their nearest CSC center by asking for OTP on mobile number registered with Aadhaar.
The Agriculture Department of Bihar has appealed to the farmers that the beneficiaries who have not got their e-KYC verification done yet under PM Kisan Yojana, they must get the verification done by August 15, 2022. On behalf of the Agriculture Department, it has been said that the next installment of Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana will not be paid to the beneficiaries who do not get the e-KYC verification done.
77 percent farmers of Bihar have done e-KYC
In Bihar, 77 percent of the beneficiary farmers of Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana have got their e-KYC done, while 19,29,367 beneficiary farmers are yet to do their e-KYC verification. On behalf of the Agriculture Department, it has been said that farmers who have not done e-KYC can go to the CSC center and get the verification of e-KYC done through biometric authentication or through OTP received on Aadhar link mobile.
The process of e-KYC started late last year. However, it was put on hold for a few weeks due to some technical glitch. When the process started again, March 31 was the last date for this work. But again it was extended till July 31, 2022. Now the government has fixed the date of August 15. If farmers fail to get e-KYC done, they will not get the next installment under the scheme. That is why it is necessary to do e-KYC.
