Can’t find your name on the PM Kisan beneficiary list? Here is what you need to do
Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi: If you are enrolled in the PM Kisan program, this news could be important to you. The central government headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to publish the 10th installment of the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi soon. Under this, all eligible and registered farming families receive benefits of Rs 6,000 each per year. For this, the government publishes the list of beneficiaries each time a payment is due. However, if your name is not on this beneficiary list despite completing all paperwork and being eligible, you can file a complaint directly with the government.

On the one hand, you can add your name by dialing the government helpline number 155261. Alternatively, you can also contact the required authorities on the phone number 011-24300606 to register. Your problem is likely to be solved if you dial one of the two numbers given.
If the numbers do not work, you can also file a complaint on the PM Kisan official website. Additionally, you can visit your area office and contact the agent there to include your name in the list of beneficiaries in case it is missed.
How to check the beneficiary status of PM Kisan
Farm families who benefit from the PM Kisan program should note that the list of beneficiaries would be posted to the Panchayats for them to view. This is to ensure better transparency of information. Apart from that, the states and Union territories that are part of the program would be responsible for notifying the sanctioning of benefits to farming families through an official system generated by SMS. Farmers, who are part of the PM Kisan program, can also check beneficiary status through the Farmers’ Corner on the official PM Kisan government portal.
Here’s how to verify your name on the website:
Step 1: Go to pmkisan.gov.in
Step 2: From the home page you will be able to see a separate section called the Farmers Corner
Step 3: In the Farmers Corner section, there is a tab called “Beneficiary Status”. Click on it
Step 4: Alternatively, you can also go directly to the link https://pmkisan.gov.in/BeneficiaryStatus.aspx
Step 5: After landing on the required page, enter any of the details – Aadhaar number, PM Kisan account number or your registered cell phone number
Step 6: After filling in the details, click on Get Data option. You will then be able to see the beneficiary status.
Each farming family, which reports to Prime Minister Kisan, is eligible to get Rs 6,000 per year from the government, in three installments of Rs 2,000 each. This is done over a period of three quarterly installments throughout the year. All farm families who own land, who have cultivable land in their name, are eligible to benefit from the PM Kisan program. However, institutional landowners and those who pay income taxes are not eligible for the scheme.
The PM Kisan scheme is one of several government funded pension plans launched by the Narendra Modi government. The Center has so far spent Rs 43,000 crore on the PM KISAN program in fiscal year 2022 to help farm families, according to reports.
