The introduction of the Aadhaar card has helped in providing targeted services to citizens of the country.
Aadhaar or the Unique Identification Number (UID) is issued only to the Indian nationalist. Irrespective of age, caste, gender, any person can get an Aadhaar Card after successful verification of the basic documents. After its rollout, the Aadhaar was made mandatory to be linked with many services be it for mobile sim card purchase, ration card, PAN Card, bank account, for LPG subsidy and the list goes on.
One such new add-on wherein Aadhaar has to be linked with is the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana. The PM Kisan Nidhi was started on December 1, 2018, by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The yojana was started by the central government to help farmers get benefits for their land.
As per the scheme, only farmers with 2 hectares of land are eligible to get benefits under this scheme in equal instalments. The amount will be directly credited to their PM Kisan Aadhar Linked Bank account.
According to the scheme, the funds will be directly transferred to the bank account of the beneficiary which is linked with the Aadhaar card. So it is mandatory to link aadhar to PM Kisan Yojana.
The PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana comes under the Agriculture Department, Cooperation and Farmer Welfare Department. It was launched on February 24, 2019, to help farmers. As per the scheme, annually an amount of Rs 6,000 will be credited to their bank accounts directly in three equal instalments.
The applicant must link their aadhaar card number with PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana to get the benefits of the scheme.
