A major change has been made in the PM Kisan Samman Yojana. Now the facility to check status from mobile number has been abolished. Earlier online KYC was made mandatory. But it was put on hold due to the state assembly elections.
PM Kisan Samman Yojana | PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Scheme: A change has been made again in PM Kisan Samman Yojana. This is the big change of this year. The effect of this change will be on all the farmers registered on PM Kisan Portal. So far more than 12 crore 44 lakh farmers are registered on this portal. Let us tell you, this change has been made in this scheme at a time when the dates for the assembly elections have been announced in five states of the country. The first phase of polling will start from February 10. Due to the changes made in the scheme, now a special facility has been taken away from the beneficiaries.
Make it clear here that since the beginning of PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Scheme, 7 changes have been made till now. A few days ago it was made mandatory for the beneficiaries to do e-KYC. But, in view of the elections, it has been put on hold. But, the changes made this time will cause a lot of inconvenience to the beneficiaries.
By making a big change in this scheme, the central government had facilitated the farmers that after registration, the farmers themselves can check the status. Like what is the status of your application, how much installment has arrived in your bank account. By visiting PM Kisan Portal, any farmer could get status information by entering his Aadhaar number, mobile or bank account number. But now this will not happen. Now you will be able to check the status only by entering the Aadhaar number or bank account number.
It is worth noting that it was very easy to check the status by dialing the mobile number. But, there was also a problem with this that many people used to check the status of their payment by entering any mobile number. In such a situation, other people used to get a lot of information about the farmers. But, now it will be very difficult to do so.
