These 7 Lakh Farmers Will Have to Return Their 10th Installment Money- Details Here

It has been found that due to the ineligibility of terms and conditions, 7 lakh farmers of UP may have to return their 10th instalment received under the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM-KISAN) scheme.

The farmers, according to a report by Hindustan Times, were found to be either paying income tax on the earnings from other sources or were not eligible for cash benefits under PM-KISAN. The report quoted the officials saying that the beneficiaries will get a window to return the money or they must get ready for recoveries.

Who Are Eligible Under PM-KISAN Scheme?

Under the PM-KISAN scheme, Rs 6,000 is disbursed through three instalments of Rs 2,000 each to the landholding farmers families. Husband, wife and one minor child are considered as a family under the scheme. The scheme is for families and not individuals. So, one family will get Rs 6,000.

Who Are Not Eligible To Receive Money Under PM-KISAN?

The families who have paid income tax on the income from other sources are not eligible under the scheme. Apart from this, the institutional landholders and the families holding constitutional posts or officer posts are also not eligible.

Also, professionals like doctors, lawyers or with a pension of more than Rs 10,000 are not eligible to receive the payment under the scheme. 7 lakh farmers were found to be ineligible for the 10th instalment for one or more of the above reasons.
