Centre: Be Aware of Fake Websites Conducting Registration under KUSUM Scheme
The Central Government has cautioned against fake websites that are conducting registrations under the Kisan Urja Suraksha Evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan (KUSUM) Scheme.
“It has been noticed that a few websites have cropped up claiming to be registration portals for the KUSUM Scheme. Such websites are potentially duping the general public and misusing data captured through fake registration portals,” an official statement said.
The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has instructed beneficiaries and the general public not to deposit registration fees or share data on such websites.
Recently, the Centre approved a system for farmers to install solar pumps and grid-connected solar power plants. The Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE) issued administrative approval for the scheme on March 8. This scheme would be implemented by power distribution companies and state nodal agencies, detailed guidelines for which will be issued soon, the statement added.
