Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojna launched: Danve

The Center today launched the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojna, whereby all existing crop insurance schemes have been integrated under one scheme for the benefit of farmers across the country, said Raosaheb Danve, president of BJP state unit. Informing about the launch of the Scheme to the media, Mr Danve said the important decision was taken in meet of the Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The new insurance scheme would be used from the forthcoming Kharif season of 2016 onwards, he informed. Giving details of the insurance scheme, Mr Danve said that the premium amount has been decided at two per cent for Kharif crops, 1.5 pc for Rabbi crops and five pc for horticulture or commercial crops for the entire year. Earlier there were several insurance schemes but several farmers were deprived of the benefits of these schemes, hence, the government had decided to club all schemes under one and launched the new scheme, BJP chief said.

Under the new scheme, the farmers who had not sowed their crops due to calamity or drought, or even during the harvesting, crops damaged due to such calamities would be covered, Mr Danve added. State spokesperson Shirsh Boralkar, local MLA Atul Save, city chief Bapu Gadamode, deputy mayor Pramod Rathod and all office bears of party were present during the briefing.
