           (a) & (b) : Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) and Restructured Weather Based Crop Insurance Scheme (RWBCIS) are available for all the farmers including sharecropper tenant farmers growing the notified crops in the notified areas. The scheme is compulsory for loanee farmers in areas/crops notified by the concerned State Government and voluntary for non-loanee farmers. Further, the scheme is also optional for the States/Union Territories. As the scheme is not notified by all the States/UTs and for all the crops/areas by the States, all the farmers in the country are not covered under these schemes. As against the premium collected from farmers amounting to Rs. 4216.04 crore in 2016-17, claims of Rs. 16279.25 crore have been paid to farmers. Similarly, claims of Rs. 16967.92 crore have been paid during 2017-18 (Kharif 2017) against premium collected from farmers amounting to Rs. 3038.70 crore. Details of enrolment of farmers, premium paid by them an claims paid are given in following table:

           (c) to (f): Season-wise details of farmers enrolled, premium received, claims processed, claims approved, claims paid and pending are given in Annexure. To monitor/oversee the claims related issues, various measures, including the following, have been taken :- 

(a) Stipulation of timelines for completion of the following activities :- 
  • (i) Submission of proposals by banks to insurance companies, (ii) Assessment of yield by State Government agencies, 
  • (ii) Assessment of yield by State Government agencies, 
  • (iii) Processing and settlement of claims by insurance companies, (to be done within three weeks of receipt of yield data from State) 
(b) Mandatory use of CCE Agri App/smartphone for transmission of data etc. 

       Further, Crop Insurance Portal has been launched for ensuring better administration, co-ordination amongst stakeholders, transparency and seamless flow of information/data including calculation of claims of individual farmers etc ensure timely settlement of claims. 

        Moreover, Operational Guidelines of the scheme have been revised recently to provide for Penalties/ Incentives for States, Insurance Companies and Banks, i.e., 12% interest rate per annum to be paid by the Insurance Company to farmers for delay in settlement claims beyond 10 days of prescribed cut off date for payment of claims. Similarly, State Govt. have to pay 12% interest rate for delay in release of State share of Subsidy beyond three months of prescribed cut off date/submission of requisition by Insurance Companies.

         Besides above, Department has put a rigorous monitoring mechanism in place in form of weekly review with all stakeholders including States, Insurance Companies, Banks and other supporting agencies, issues based meetings with concerned stakeholders including meetings of Technical Advisory Committee and meetings of National Level Monitoring Committee (NLMC) to ensure early settlement of claims under the scheme.
