The Cabinet has also approved relaxation of the mandatory requirement of Aadhaar-seeded data as a pre-condition for release of funds to the beneficiaries under the PM-Kisan scheme.
The relaxation will be till 30th November this year. The scheme provides income support of 6,000 rupees per year to landholding families, subject to certain exclusions.
The amount is released in three 4-monthly instalments of 2,000 rupees each directly to the bank accounts of the beneficiaries through Direct Benefit transfer mode. (AIR NEWS)
