Airtel: Farmers’ incentives to Airtel: Primary account – Airtel payment account becomes primary account for farmers and becoming big issue


  • The problem is when you have more than one bank account
  • Airtel Payment Account is the primary account
  • Allegation of opening Airtel Payment Account

Vijayakumar H.S.
Nilamangala (Bangalore Countryside):
The government’s incentive payments to farmers and various communities are being credited to the Airtel Payment account, which is not available to beneficiaries. As a result, people and farmers wander into offices and banks.

The government is giving Rs. Milk Incentive Fund, 3 months 2000 of PM Kisan Scheme, Proceeds from the Department of Agriculture and Horticulture and all Governmental Aid grants are credited to the beneficiary’s primary account. Unknown to farmers, Airtel has been accused of causing problems for many people as a result of opening a primary account.

What is a Primary Account ?: If a person has more than one bank account, the account holder has the authority to deal with a bank account as a primary account. Funds are credited to a direct bank account, including government assistance to the primary account. The primary account must be done with the permission of the account holder. However, farmers have expressed outrage that Airtel’s unawareness at the time of taking the SIM was a problem for us as it was opened as a primary account.

30 Thousand Jame: Premash Chandra, a farmer from Hanumanthegowda’s Palya in Nallamangala taluk, had to pay Rs. The incentive payment is Rs. 30,400 in the Airtel Payment Account opened without this person’s permission. Jamey, who came to light upon inspection, withdrew money and canceled his account as a primary account.

Similarly, Veerabhadraiah, a farmer from Chikkanahalli, has withdrawn his deposit to the subsidized Airtel Payment account from the Agriculture Department. This is a problem for hundreds of farmers.

Why only on Airtel: Airtel Payment has opened up a new account to allow SIM-takers to expand the company’s new plan, which is causing much trouble for the masses and farmers. Farmers’ organizations insist that Airtel only have the problem of not opening the account, so the opportunity to become a primary account must be dropped.

Bamool officials were given milk incentives, which meant that bank officials were absent. 30,400 when checked. Airtel payment was credited. We have no information on this. Many farmers are aware that banking is a problem and it is not right for Airtel to do so, says Farmer Premesh Chandra.

Persons with more than one account must identify a primary account. When you open an Airtel Payment Account, enter it as a Primary Account and the money will be credited to that account. Madhusudan, Lead Bank Officer, says that the Aadhaar link and the account holder’s permission must be open when opening the account.

The people of the state did not hold hands against the farmers’ backs! Bored HDK
