This installment benefits 9.3 crore farmers and about Rs 20,000 crore was given in it. Farmers get this money in three installments throughout the year. Each installment consists of Rs 2,000 and an annual amount of Rs 6,000.

These people do not get benefit in PM Kisan Yojana

If a farmer takes land on rent from another farmer and does farming. Then in such a situation, he also does not get the benefit of the scheme. Land ownership is necessary in PM Kisan. On the other hand, if a farmer or someone in the family holds a constitutional post, then he does not get the benefit. Not only this, professionals like doctors, engineers, CAs, architects and lawyers also cannot avail the benefits of the scheme. Even if they are farmers. Along with this, retired employees who get a monthly pension of more than Rs 10,000 also do not get its benefit.
