These' will not benefit from PM-Kisan scheme
Farmers who change land ownership outside the family will not benefit from this scheme.
Under the 'Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi’ (PM-Kisan) scheme, farmers registered in the land records from 1 February 2019 will receive Rs. 6,000 per year. Any purchase and sale or change in ownership of land will not benefit from this scheme for the next five years after this date. However, if the transfer of ownership changes takes place within the family, they will be considered eligible for the scheme.
The list of beneficiary farmers will be released in the Gram Panchayat, and later will be uploaded on 'PM-Kisan Portal' www.pmkisan.gov.in. If the farmers feel they are qualified under this scheme but their names are excluded, they can meet with block or district level officials to make them cognizant of their problems.
