In a Parliament reply, agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar suggests that approximately 4.2 million people who were not eligible for payments under PM-KISAN, the Modi government's money scheme for farmers, got a total of Rs 2,900 crore that since scheme's launch, and that measures will be taken to regain the funds.

Most states had unqualified recipients, according to statistics given in Tomar's response to a "unstarred" topic in the Lok Sabha, the Lower House. Assam, Tamil Nadu, Chhattisgarh, Punjab, and Bihar had the most people. A written response is supplied for an unstarred inquiry.

“States have been asked to initiate criminal proceedings against people who fraudulently got into the system and to recover amounts disbursed to them,” an official with knowledge of the matter said, requesting anonymity.

A farmer family must be “a farmer family including husband, wife, and minor children who possess cultivable land as per land records” to be eligible for PM-KISAN. Non-farmers are immediately disqualified from the programme. 

According to the program's governing rules, administrators must also conduct physical authentication of recipients. according to Tomar, a video conference between federal and state officials is held every Tuesday to keep an eye on the plan.

“The amounts withdrawn by ineligible are public money. Since the Centre entirely funds PM-KISAN, it should also take responsibility for this. States must punish conniving local officials,” said KS Mani, an agricultural economist.
