From December onwards, Central government has decided to transfer money under the PM-Kisan to only Aadhaar-verified bank accounts of farmers.

Agriculture ministry said the release of installments to beneficiary farmers are in different stages of progress. Some farmers have received all the three installments, some have got two installments and some have received just one.

The Andhra Pradesh government in October had launched the ‘Rythu Bharosa’ scheme that provides a cash incentive for farm inputs. Under this scheme, land holder farmers with up to 5 acres will be given with an annual benefit of Rs 13,500. The amount also includes the annual benefit of Rs 6,000 / family provided by Central government under PM KISAN Yojana. Tenant farmers or landless cultivators from SC, ST, BC & minority groups are also covered by the state government’s scheme.
