There is some relief for farmers in Gujarat. A state minister has said that the central government will release Rs 400 crore towards crop insurance for farmers of Gujarat this week, according to media reports.

"The Centre is going to release Rs 400 crore towards crop insurance for farmers of Gujarat on July 25 that will benefit around 2.5 lakh farmers of the state," Gujarat’s minister of state for agriculture, Mohan Kundariya said.

The farmers, who have paid crop insurance premium, will get the insurance amount, he added.

Kundariya said the crop insurance is for the year 2014 and the Centre decided to release the amount after the Gujarat government sent a proposal.

"Those farmers, who paid premium for their crop in the year 2014 and whose crops were damaged or faced total crop failure, will be given the benefit," he said.

According to the minister the crop insurance will help farmers of Saurashtra region who are facing a difficult situation after the recent flash floods.

Kundariya claimed that the Centre has also made arrangements to release separate funds for insurance of cotton crop by the end of September. (SH)
