NEW DELHI, 9 July 2020: The Agri-Business Committee of PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry has organized a webinar on Webinar on Crop and extreme weather Insurance in India Challenges and the Way Forward today. 

The Guest of Honor for the webinar Malay Kumar Poddar , Chairman-cum-Managing Director, Agriculture Insurance Company of India while highlighting the importance of the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) which was formulated in line with One Nation–One Scheme theme by replacing earlier two schemes National Agricultural Insurance Scheme (NAIS) and Modified National Agricultural Insurance Scheme (MNAIS) aiming, to reduce the premium burden on farmers and ensure early settlement of crop assurance claim for the full insured sum.

Poddar said that the scheme provides a comprehensive insurance cover against failure of the crop thus helping in stabilising the income of the farmers and has been beset by a number of problems for the farmers with unpaid dues in thousands of crores while insurance companies have pocketed the money.

PHDCCI Sr. Vice President Sanjay Aggarwal in his welcome address said that agriculture is the dominant sector and the primary source of livelihood to about 58 percent of India’s population.

Crop insurance can provide economic support to farmers

He highlighted the need of the crop insurance to provide economic support to farmers in case of crop failure and stabilise farm income, induce farmers to invest in agriculture, check and reduce indebtedness and decrease the need for relief measures in the event of crop failure.

He added the measures taken by the Government of India such as National Agriculture Insurance Scheme (NAIS), Modified National Agriculture Insurance Scheme (MNAIS), Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) among others to empower farmers and to cope with the production risk associated with climatic aberrations.

Technology can be used to mitigate crop yield estimation

Mahalanobis National Crop Forecast Centre director Dr. Shibendu Shankar Ray in his presentation on Satellite Remote Sensing highlighted the advantages of Satellite Remote Sensing over ground base data such as accessibility and availability, generation of large spectrum of indices to detect biophysical changes in the plant growth and calculation of yield loss beyond rainfall.

He further suggested the way forward by using smart sampling for large number of crops, continuity of pilot survey, mitigating to a system of technology driven crop yield estimation, use of remote sensing for index based insurance among others.

Insurance industry suffered losses worth USD $135 billion in 2018

Dr. S.D. Attri, Dy Director General of Meteorology, India Meteorological Department in his presentation on challenges of weather and climate extremes highlighted the role of weather in Indian Agriculture and reiterated about the Status of decline in rainfall among the states over the years .

He added that Insurance Industry has suffered losses of USD $135 billion in 2018 which is highest in 40 years of spam. While citing the data records over the years, he said that between 1998 and 2017, people ranging about 526,000 lost their lives with an economic loss of about USD $3.47 trillion due to the extreme weather aberrations.

Dharmendra Sharma, Crop Insurances & Agriculture Consultant , Product Design & Implementation PMFBY (Government of Haryana) introduced the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) and the features of the scheme.
