According to central government sources, the increased expenditure for this scheme and other economic aspects related to it are being assessed.

The central government can announce increase in the amount of Kisan Samman Nidhi before the assembly elections in 5 states. At present a farmer family gets Rs 6,000 annually. Now there is preparation to give 8 thousand rupees. This decision will benefit 8.5 crore farmer families. This money is available through Direct Benefit Transfer Scheme.

 

According to central government sources, a proposal in this regard will be brought in the Union Cabinet meeting this month. For this, the increasing expenditure and other economic aspects related to it are being assessed.

Meanwhile, even if the Election Commission announces the code of conduct, the central government can pass a proposal in the cabinet and announce the decision after the elections are over. Because, this scheme is to benefit the farmers of all the states of the country.

When the Central Government first conducted a review, the eligible beneficiaries received Rs 10.60 crore. After the second review the number came down to 8.51 crore.

When the Central Government first conducted a review, the eligible beneficiaries received Rs 10.60 crore. After the second review the number came down to 8.51 crore.

According to the Centre’s review, the actual beneficiaries are 8.51 crore instead of 11 crore.
Kisan Samman Nidhi was implemented from 24 February 2019. Under this, farmers get Rs 6 thousand annually in 3 installments. 9 crore in 2019-20, 10 crore in 2020-21, 6 thousand rupees were transferred annually to 11 crore farmers in 2021-22.
After this, when the Central Government reviewed, the number of eligible beneficiaries came down to 10.60 crore. After that, when the Central Government once again investigated the beneficiaries, it was found that only 8.51 crore were the real beneficiaries. That means 2.5 crore beneficiaries were found to be fake. Now the government believes that increasing the amount by Rs 2,000 will not increase the total amount released by the central government.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi transferred the 14th installment of Kisan Samman Nidhi to the accounts of 9 crore farmers from Sikar, Rajasthan. Maximum farmers of Uttar Pradesh got its benefit. Those farmers of Uttar Pradesh who were not able to get PM Kisan Samman Nidhi due to lack of documents, have now got their documents corrected by running a campaign.
