The Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi, or PM Kisan, flagged by the central government has transferred Rs 2,000 each as the 11th installment of the scheme to over 10 crore beneficiary farmers in a bid to provide financial assistance to them.

The Centre has by far provided over Rs 2 lakh crore financial support to farmers under the PM Kisan Scheme.
The PM Kisan money is released thrice per year. To receive the next installment and all the other installments of PM Kisan, however, beneficiary farmers have to complete their PM Kisan eKYC process.
