Regarding loss of farmers' crops due to heavy and subdued rainfall
Rs. 1 crore will be assisted: Deputy Chief Minister Shri Nitinbhai Patel
• Over 1 lakh farmers benefit in this special assistance package
• If there is a loss of more than 5%, Rs. 1 / ha for irrigation crops and Rs. 1 / ha for non-irrigation crops will be provided.
• The State Government will also provide assistance to those farmers who have suffered less than 5% loss in rainfall.
• Peanuts will be purchased from November 7 onwards
Deputy Chief Minister Shri Nitinbhai Patel said that while the state government is always trying to help the farmers of the state, an estimated Rs. 1 crore will be paid by the state government in respect of the farmers who have been harmed in the crop due to heavy and deficient rainfall in the state. More than 3 lakh farmers will benefit from this special assistance package.
This important decision has been taken after a discussion on the loss of farmers' crops due to rain at a meeting of the state cabinet meeting held at Gandhinagar under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Shri Vijaybhai Rupani. According to the Central Government's Calimity Relief Fund, where there is a loss of more than 5% in crops, assistance of Rs. 1 per hectare will be paid in poultry crops and Rs.
Khedit sahay YojnaShri Patel added that due to heavy rains and deficient rains in the state this year, heavy rains during July-August-September months in some districts of the state as well as loss of farmers' crop during the end of October and first week of November began immediately. That is nearing perfection.
In addition to this, the state government has decided to assist farmers in the loss of crop due to the short-term rainfall survey but the loss is less than 5%.
It is pertinent to mention here that more than 3 lakh farmers will be provided central and state government assistance of Rs 1 crore. Besides, farmers who take out insurance in the PM's Crop Insurance Scheme will get separate benefits as per the guidelines of crop insurance scheme. Due to the stagnation in the state, the purchase was postponed at the support price of groundnut. It will be resumed from November 7.
