Objectives of PM KISAN

Problems in implementation

  1. Errors in registered names and bank accounts. Example Nearly 13 million farmers in Uttar Pradesh could miss out on the fourth instalment of Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM-KISAN) minimum income support scheme unless errors in their registered names and bank accounts
  2. Aadhaar-seeding is taking time, which is mandatory for fourth Installment
  3. Errors in land records. Solution digitization of land records. Best practice Andhra use Blockchain for land records
  4. Strengthening IT backbone-- States with robust computerized land records data base and a good IT infrastructure will be in a better position to implement PM-KISAN
  5. Banks need to be sensitized properly on their critical role in implementation of PM-KISAN. Guidelines from Centre and RBI are needed for this. State Governments may also convene special meetings of the State Level Bankers Committee (SLBC) with the Lead Banks positively driving the intention.
  6. Identification of sharecroppers/lessee cultivators continues to be a huge challenge. Solution land leasing law.
  7. what will happen to those farmers who missed first three installments.

  4. Strengthening IT backbone in states
