New Delhi | Updated on March 18, 2019

The Centre has red-flagged fraudulent websites that are conducting registrations under the Kisan Urja Suraksha evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan (KUSUM) Scheme.

“It has been noticed that a few websites have cropped up claiming to be registration portals for the KUSUM Scheme. Such websites are potentially duping the general public and misusing data captured through fake registration portals,” an official statement said.

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has advised potential beneficiaries and the general public against depositing any registration fee or sharing data on such websites.

The Centre recently approved a scheme for farmers for the installation of solar pumps and grid connected solar power plants. Administrative approval for the scheme was issued by the Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE) on March 8. The power distribution companies and state nodal agencies would implement this scheme, detailed guidelines for which will be issued shortly, the statement added.
