It is also designing a new system for farmers’ pension scheme, announcing the decision of the first cabinet meeting under the new Modi government.
Under the PM Kisan Yojna, the government gives INR 6,000 a year to all the farmers registered under the scheme. The voluntary pension scheme offers INR 3,000 per month to farmers attaining the age of 60, with an entry age of 18-40 years.
“We plan to introduce the option of online registration, where farmers can apply online from any common service centre. The form then can be verified online by the respective patwari or any authorised official of the gram panchayat. This will stem corruption and result in fast implementation of this scheme,” said a senior agriculture department official according to an ET report.
He also said that there were many disqualifications in the application due to illegible forms and information mismatch, adding that online registrations would keep a check on this process.
The range of this scheme has widened after it was extended to farmers irrespective of the land they hold. For quick disposal of applications, it becomes essential that there is an option for applying online. Online registrations would also work parallel to the existing system of registration, thus broadening its reach.
Under the current norms, farmers deposit their forms to the gram panchayat, where the authorised people verify the information.
“We have come to know about many incidents where farmers had to follow up officials and extend favour for getting the verification done. By going online, these incidents will reduce in numbers,”the official reportedly said.
So far, under the PM Kisan Yojana, the government has enrolled 36.6 Mn beneficiaries. Of these. Out of these, 30.3 Mn have been paid the first instalment of 2,000 and 19.9 Mn have received the second instalment as well.
After opening the scheme to all the farmers, the number of beneficiaries is expected to reach 145 Mn.
Taking every farmer under the net would be a time-consuming exercise. We would introduce processes which can curtail the time,” he added.
The PM Kisan Yojana is an income support scheme of INR 6,000 to marginal landholders who have a cultivable land holding of up to 2 hectares.
The amount is released in a three to four-month installment of INR 2,000. The amount is credited into the bank account of the beneficiaries in destination banks through Direct Benefit Transfer Mode. So far the government claims that there have been 3.11 Cr beneficiaries, where the second installment was credited to 2.66 Cr beneficiaries.

What is PM-KISAN
It is a path-breaking support incentive for farmers. The genesis of the PM-KISAN Yojana dates back to the interim Budget for the year 2019-2020. The key element of PM-KISAN was income support of Rs. 6000 to the small and marginal landholder farmer families with cultivable land holding up to 2 hectare across the country. This was expanded on Friday. The amount under the scheme is released in three 4-monthly instalments of Rs.2000 each over the year and credited into the bank accounts of the beneficiaries held in destination banks through Direct Benefit Transfer mode. The scheme was launched in a record time of 3 weeks, on 24th February at a huge programme in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh where the first round of instalments was paid to several farmers.
The first instalment went to 3.11 crore beneficiaries and the second instalment to 2.66 crore beneficiaries was credited directly to the bank accounts of the farmer families.
