Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has issued orders to immediately compensate farmers whose crops have been damaged by unseasonal rainfall and hailstorms.

One of the government spokesmen said, “The CM has affirmed that even if a single farmer’s crop is critically damaged by the hailstorm or excessive rain, the farmer should be paid compensation sufficiently in conformity with the law without any delay.”

Emphasizing the need for continuing an effective application of the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojna, the CM said as per the instructions of the government of India, in all the districts at the gram panchayat level, this scheme was being implemented by notifying the main crops of Rabi and Kharif seasons.

He said, “More farmers should be linked to this scheme.”

In addition to this, the spokesman said that compensation totaling ₹3957.38 crores was disbursed to 48.21 lakh farmers in the state under the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana, during the kharif period between 2017–18 and 2022–23.

Under the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana, there is a provision for financial assistance in the form of insurance coverage to farmers in case of damage or loss of crops due to natural calamities, worms, and diseases.

In the meantime, between April 2023 and March 2024, 2,500 new buses will be enlisted into the UPSRTC’s fleet as a follow-up to the government’s orders of reducing the fleet’s average age from 7.62 years to 5 years, the spokesman said.
