PM Kisan eKYC 2024: Receive ₹2000 in Bank Account, Step By step Guide check now
Hello Farmers, Welcome To JK Student Academy. In this article, I, Mufayaiz Wani, will guide you through the essential details of the PM-KISAN eKYC 2024 and the significance of eKYC in ensuring seamless fund transfers to farmers’ Aadhaar-seeded bank accounts.
The PM-KISAN scheme, initiated in February 2019, aims to financially support land-holding farmers across India. Under this scheme, farmers receive Rs 6,000 per year in three equal installments through Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT). The focus is on transferring funds directly into Aadhaar-seeded bank accounts, minimizing middlemen involvement.
eKYC plays a pivotal role in ensuring that the benefits of the PM KISAN scheme reach the intended beneficiaries without any intermediaries. It streamlines the process and promotes transparency in fund disbursement.
