PMFBY Application Form
The PMFBY was launched in 2016 and replaces all the prevailing yield insurance schemes in India. The scheme has been launched with an impetus on the crop sector. The scheme has extended coverage under localized risks, post-harvest losses, etc. and aims at the adoption of technology for the purpose of yield estimation. Through increased farmer awareness and low farmer premium rates, the scheme aims at increasing crop insurance penetration in India.

- Providing financial support to farmers suffering crop loss/damage arising out of unforeseen events
- Stabilizing the income of farmers to ensure their continuance in farming
