Due to some of these accounts being invalid, their payment has been temporarily withheld. However, the account number given by some applicants is not present in the bank. In many states, corruption cases have also come up regarding this scheme. According to the officials of the Union Agriculture Ministry, it is the responsibility of the states to identify the eligible farmer families under the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Scheme. Because it is a state subject, the work of verification of revenue records is with the states. According to the records of agriculture, the state government has to decide who is a farmer and who is not. The Central Government gives 6000 rupees on whose records the state government stamps.

What is the way to send money

To help the farmers, the central government sends a total of 6000 rupees a year to their account under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana. It is a 100 percent central government funded scheme. But the revenue record has to be verified by the states because it is a state subject. When state governments verify the data of their farmers and send them to the center, then money is sent. The central government does not send direct money. It has been told that based on the data sent by the states, the money first goes to the accounts of the states. After that money reaches the farmers from the account of the state.
