Subject :- Implementation of PM-KISAN - Random Survey - reg. 

PM- KISAN is being implemented with a view to augmenting the income of the farmers across the country by providing income support to all farmers families irrespective of the size of the land holding. The number of eligible beneficiaries has been estimated on the basis of projection of Agricultural Census 2015-16 data for 2018-19.


2. Para 10.5 of the Operational Guidelines of the PM-KISAN Scheme stipulates that efforts should be undertaken by State/UT Governments to ensure checking for around 5% of the beneficiary for the eligibility during the year.

3. You are therefore, requested to conduct a random survey by collecting samples from various districts/blocks/tehsils and submit the findings so that the correctness of  the  data  may  be established . This would also enable the Division to make further releases based on the findings submitted by the State. The expenditure involved in conducting random survey by the States may be met from the Administrative Expenses of PM-KISAN, allocated to the State.

Yours faithfully,
