There is a piece of good news for eligible beneficiaries who are waiting for an update regarding the resumption of eKYC authentication on the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM Kisan) portal. PM Kisan portal has again started authentication on Aadhaar-based eKYC through OTP.

Earlier this month, Aadhar-based eKYC through OTP authentication was temporarily suspended and the eligible farmers were suggested to opt for biometric authentication for eKYC by visiting common service centres.
