According to the PM Kisan website, “eKYC is MANDATORY for PMKISAN Registered Farmers. OTP Based eKYC is available on PMKISAN Portal or nearest CSC centres may be contacted for Biometric based eKYC.”
According to the Department’s tweet, “All beneficiaries of the PM-KISAN Samman Nidhi Yojana have been advised that e-KYC verification is mandatory before the upcoming 13th instalment. In Bihar, around 16.74 lakh beneficiaries have not completed their e-KYC verification. The DBT Agriculture Department has also sent SMS messages to the affected beneficiaries.
Beneficiaries must complete eKYC before 28 January 2023 in order to receive the benefits of the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana. eKYC recipients can conduct their own Aadhaar link from the PM-Kisan portal using an OTP from their mobile number, or they can perform eKYC using biometric method from their local CSC/Vasudha centre, for which the government has set a cost of Rs.15.”
