According to the information given by the Ministry in response to an RTI, these figures are till 7 September 2020. Under this scheme, the share of Dalit i.e. Scheduled Caste and Tribal i.e. Scheduled Caste farmers are 11.9 percent and 9.9 percent respectively.
But the most concern in this figure is about Punjab. 31% of the total population of Punjab is Dalit. But here only 22 dalit farmers get the benefit of PM Kisan Samam Nidhi Yojana. This shows how much monopoly the other community has over the land in Punjab. Telangana has the same situation. 87 per cent of the population of this state comes in OBC, but no farmer gets the benefit of PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana from this class.
