Mr. Prashant Subhashrao Deshmukh, 27 years young farmer, started farming activities 6 years back at his village Nandapur, Taluka-Kalmnuri, District- Hingoli, Maharashtra. He mostly used to grow Turmeric, Soybean, Green Gram, Red Gram, and Sorghum at his farm. Unseasonal rains and uncertainty of onset of Monsoon made him very disappointed for the practice of agriculture. But last year he came to know the benefits of crop Insurance for such kinds of uncertainties. We would like to share his experience with PMFBY and Bajaj Allianz General Insurance Company’s approach towards Claim payments in his own words.

Mr. Prashant told us, “Last year during the last week of October there was very heavy rains during harvesting season of Soybean, Kharif 2019 crop. Everyone was trying to intimate the crop loss intimations through various channels, I came to know about Farmitra application of Bajaj Allianz General Insurance Company through my friend. I downloaded the application and was able to register my claim within 5-6 minutes. I got the intimation number also immediately after registration of my crop loss. This helped me to get my claims within time and I am really very happy that Bajaj Allianz General Insurance Company had paid a very satisfactory claim amount to me for my soybean crop loss. Thank you Bajaj Allianz GIC, for helping the farmers like me who really want protection from these various agricultural risks

After giving this specific feedback he added to his experience that, even for this Kharif season 2020 he is using the Farmitra Application for weather forecast and agro advisory services for his crop production Practices.

After listening to his feedback, we really feel proud that even in this season we are not only working under PMFBY but are also helping the farmers by providing the most trusted information like the weather forecast, agro-advisory, crop diagnostic, etc. This will help them to enhance their crop production, which is one of the major objectives of PMFBY.
