Crop Insurance Scheme may Leave out Tenant Farmers

Narendra Modi was the target of Patna blasts, says NIA chief
  • The Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojna (PMFBY), which the NDA government showcases as the shield against all risks faced by farmers, has failed to be universal.
  • All India Kisan Sabha joint secretary Vijoo Krishnan said that the PMFBY continued the mandatory covering of loanee farmers.
  • Non-loanee farmers and tenant farmers were likely to remain outside its ambit.
  • Mr. Krishnan said members of All India Kissan Sabha felt that trade liberalisation and free trade agreements exposed farmers to the volatility in world markets.
