The premium rates to be paid by farmers are very low and the balance premium will be paid by the Government to provide a full insured amount to the farmers against crop loss on account of natural calamities.
- There is no upper limit on Government subsidy. Even if the balance premium is 90%, it will be borne by the Government.
- Earlier, there was a provision of capping the premium rate which resulted in low claims being paid to farmers. This capping was done to limit the Government outgo on the premium subsidy. This capping has now been removed and farmers will get a claim against the full sum insured without any reduction.
- The use of technology will be encouraged to a great extent. Smartphones will be used to capture and upload data of crop cutting to reduce the delays in claim payment to farmers. Remote sensing will be used to reduce the number of crop cutting experiments.
- PMFBY is a replacement scheme of NAIS / MNAIS, there will be an exemption from Service Tax liability of all the services involved in the implementation of the scheme. It is estimated that the new scheme will ensure about 75-80 percent of subsidy for the farmers in insurance premiums.
