M KISAN 12th Installment: The central government under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to credit another installment of the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi to crores of farmers across the country within the end of this month. This means that eligible farmers who are waiting eagerly to receive their four-monthly allowance of Rs 2,000 from the government will get the good news soon. However, to get the money, the beneficiary farmers will have to complete their PM Kisan eKYC process by August 31, Wednesday.
The PM Kisan Scheme was started in December 2018, under the Narendra Modi government, to provide pension to such farmer families who need financial support. The scheme was flagged off by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in February next year. The PM Kisan scheme is a totally government-backed one and is applicable to families of all farmers with landholdings. Under the PM-KISAN scheme, landholding farmers get an allowance of Rs 6,000 per year, which is distributed thrice over the year in a gap of four months. So far, the government has spent over Rs 2 lakh crore on the PM-KISAN scheme for the welfare of the farmers.
