Government will compensate the farmers by assessing losses from satellite
Recently, the Modi government brought relief for the farmers who are unhappy about the loss of crops due to heavy rain and adverse weather. The government has taken a big step in the Pradhan Mantri Crop Insurance Scheme to solve the problem of farmers suffering from crop loss.
This is how the government will help farmers:
Now the government will take the help of satellite to get an accurate estimate of how much damage has been done to crops. The experts believe that this step is commendable because it is less likely to be rigged and farmers will be compensated fairly. According to the information, through smart sampling, the government will ensure that farmers get their payment as soon as possible.
This scheme will benefit those farmers whose crops have been destroyed or affected due to any natural calamities like rain, storm etc.
