 Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana Launched

Dear VLEs,

We are pleased to announce that PRADHAN MANTRI FASAL BIMA YOJANA (PMFMY/Crop Insurance) has been launched on Digital Seva Portal.

Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) has been launched by Hon’able Prime Minister Sh. Narendra Modi with aims to support sustainable production in agriculture sector by way of providing financial support to the farmers suffering crop loss/damage arising out of unforeseen events; stabilizing the income of farmers to ensure their continuance in farming; encouraging farmers to adopt innovative and modern agricultural practices; and ensuring flow of credit to the agriculture sector; which will contribute to the food security, crop diversification and enhancing growth and competitiveness of agriculture sector besides protecting farmers from production risks.

PMFBY is monitored by our Prime Minister’s Office & Ministry of Agriculture, Govt. of India.
Any NON LOANEE Farmer who want to cover his Fasal/Crop can enroll under this scheme by contributing some amount of Premium.
Because this is a subsidized scheme, Hence farmer has to pay only his share of premium, rest premium will be paid by the Central & State Government to the insurance companies directly.

This scheme is regulated by the Insurance Regulatory & Development Authority of India (IRDAI) and all major General Insurance Companies have assigned different State & District to insure Crops/Fasal of these farmers as per instructions of the Government of India.
