    PM KISAN 16th Installment Date Announced; These Farmers Will Not Get Rs. 2000

  • Date : 23 February, 2024

    The much-anticipated PM KISAN 16th Installment is set to be disbursed at the end of February. The central government, as per the announcement on the PM Kisan website, has scheduled the release of the 16th installment for February 28th. Under this scheme, eligible beneficiaries receive an annual cash benefit of Rs. 6,000, distributed in three equal installments of Rs. 2,000 each.

    The previous installment, the 15th, was disbursed on November 15th, amounting to a significant sum of Rs. 18,000 crore, benefiting over 8 crore farmers across the nation.

    PM Kisan 16th Installment: Eligibility Criteria
    However, it's crucial to note that certain categories of farmers are excluded from availing the benefits under the PM-KISAN scheme. Institutional landholders and farmer families whose members have paid income tax in the last assessment year fall under this exclusion. Additionally, families with members holding or having held constitutional positions such as mayors of Municipal Corporations, chairpersons of District Panchayats, or former or current members of legislative bodies are ineligible for the scheme's benefits.

    Checking Payment Status and Details
    Farmers eager to check their installment status and payment details can do so conveniently through the official PM Kisan website. By navigating to the 'Farmers Corner' section and selecting the 'Beneficiary Status & List' option, farmers can fill in the required details and obtain their status report promptly.

    Campaign for e-KYC Compliance
    To ensure seamless processing of payments, farmers are advised to complete their e-KYC (Know Your Customer) verification. This can be done through the 'e-KYC' link provided on the left-hand side of the homepage of the PM Kisan website. By diligently filling in the required information and submitting it, farmers contribute to expediting the disbursement process.

    Recognizing the importance of timely payments, a campaign for e-KYC compliance has been launched. District administrations will set up Common Service Center camps in villages or blocks as necessary to facilitate this process. Trained staff at these centers will assist farmers in addressing any concerns or issues related to payment delays promptly. Farmers are encouraged to visit these camps to ensure their e-KYC is complete and to seek resolution for any outstanding issues.

    In case of any queries or issues pertaining to the PM Kisan Yojana, farmers can reach out via email at or contact the helpline numbers provided: 155261 or 1800115526 (Toll-Free) or 011-23381092.
