Rs 442 cr went to ineligible, dead farmers under PM-KISAN in Karnataka

Bangalore, 28/9: In a major fraud, financial assistance worth Rs 442 crore went to four lakh ‘ineligible’ and ‘dead’ farmers in Karnataka under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM-KISAN), a flagship scheme of the ruling BJP government.



Authorities are going after these farmers to recover the money they received.


Under PM-KISAN, launched in 2019, the Union government gives every landholding farmer family Rs 6,000 annually. On top of this, the BJP government in Karnataka pays an additional Rs 4,000 from its coffers.
