 - Sakshi Post

Sri Sathya Sai District: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy released compensation under the YSR Free Crop Insurance scheme pertaining to the 2021-Kharif season at Chenne Kothapalli village in  Sri Satyasai district on Tuesday. An amount of  Rs 2,977 crore was remitted into the accounts of 15.61 lakh farmers of Anantapur and Sathya Sai districts who lost their crops due to the natural calamities during the 2021 Kharif season under the direct benefit transfer option.

The YSR Free Crop Insurance scheme was introduced by the AP government in 2019 where farmers were not required to pay anything to get compensation for loss in crops due to natural calamities.  As per the Chief Minister's instructions crop insurance payment was the farmers’ right and directed that it should be granted at the earliest to provide relief to the farmer who lost their crop due to natural calamities in order to make them continue cultivation in the next season.

The agriculture department has kept track of crop loss through an e-crop database which is published in Rythu Bharosa Kendras (RBKs) and updated after feedback from farmers. The Chief Minister also said that no eligible farmer was to be left out of the ambit of this scheme.  The e-crop is registered and an acknowledgement receipt is given at the time of sowing the crop. Crop damage is evaluated in a scientific manner and every eligible farmer is given the insurance amount.

The lists of eligible candidates are being displayed in the Village Secretariats with emphasis on transparency and ensuring that farmers need not run around government offices or middlemen. Insurance amounts for the crop losses incurred during any season are credited directly to the farmers' accounts at the end of that season.
