The Chief Minister asked the revenue department to complete the entire crop loss assessment in these affected districts of the Malwa belt by September 24.

The Chief Minister also directed the directed the revenue department to ensure the payment of compensation directly to the cultivators in case of land was given to the cultivators by the owners on contract farming so as to mitigate hardships. (SH)
