Transfer of funds under the PM Kisan Samriddhi Yojana to over 1.5 lakh farmers was stalled after problems started taking place in the data base of the Uttar Pradesh government. According to Uttar Pradesh Agriculture Minister, Surya Pratap Shahi, "The problem in the data base has been being rectified and the farmers will now receive the money at the earliest."

The Minister said, "The scheme was aimed at small and marginal farmers and had proved to be a game changer that worked in favour of the BJP in the recent Lok Sabha elections. The Uttar Pradesh government has sent data of 1.56 crore farmers to the Centre, out of which 1.11 crore farmers have already got the first instalment of the Kisan Samman Yojana. The state’s share of partnership in this scheme is 38 per cent."

The reports of money not being transferred to some farmers accounts, has been dismissed by the Minister. He said, "The transfer of money could not take place due to data mismatch for nearly 1.5 lakh farmers. Now all the data mismatch will be corrected and the funds will be transferred to the accounts of farmers. For which, the instructions had also been given to the officials.

The aim of this scheme is to supplement the financial needs of small and marginal farmers to procure agricultural inputs and ensure a better yield. "The Narendra Modi government had helped the farmers in overcoming their financial stress and the Yogi Adityanath government had gone out of its way to ensure the scheme's benefits reach the target group," said the Minister.
