Mantri Fasal Bima Yojna-Non-feeding of data by bank branches in the Crop
Insurance Portal of MoA&FW.
Please refer to our circular FIDD.No.FSD.BC20/05.10.007/2015-16 dated March
17, 2016 advising you to ensure strict compliance of the
provisions of the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojna and ensure coverage of
100% of defined loanee farmers along with good number of non-loanee farmers
to achieve the defined objectives and targets fixed under the Scheme.
2. As per the PMFBY operational
guidelines of the Government of India banks are also expected to capture
all relevant data including land and crop details of all loanee farmers and
non-loanee farmers availing crop insurance through the branches.
3. Ministry of Agriculture &
Farmers Welfare has since advised all banks to enter farmer details in the
unified portal for crop insurance which is available atwww.agri-insurance.gov.in. It has been brought to
our notice that entries are not being made by the bank branches in the
portal. Resultantly MoA&FW, State Governments etc. are not able to cull
out any data leading to difficulties in assessment of coverage of crops
insured, premiums deducted, etc. You are therefore advised to issue
necessary instructions to your branches to feed the relevant data in the
portal at the earliest.
