Meghraj Singh Ratnu, Rajasthan Nodal Officer on the subject, said linking of bank accounts with e-KYC and Aadhaar is mandatory for the beneficiaries of Pradhan Mantri Kishan scheme before February 10, 2023. If this is not done in time then they will not get the next installment of Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana directly in their bank account. The official added that the Center has directed that 67 per cent e-KYC and 88 per cent bank account linking with Aadhaar be done by the beneficiaries of the scheme in the state by January 2023. In Rajasthan, one of the western states of India, about 24.45 lakh PM Kisan beneficiaries are yet to undergo e-KYC. Besides, 1.94 lakh PM Kisan beneficiaries are yet to link their bank accounts with Aadhaar. He also added that beneficiaries who have not yet done e-KYC and linked their bank accounts with Aadhaar, must do so before February 10.
