Crop insurance | 100-200 for Panchnama. Recovery, economic loot of farmers by crop insurance company
Nandgaon Khandeshwar (No.), Due to excessive rainfall in the tehsil, more than 70 percent of thousands of hectares of crops have been destroyed. To compensate for this loss, the farmers took out crop insurance by adding money. But the insurance representatives, who came to do Panchnama on behalf of Agriculture Insurance Company of India Limited Company, are doing Panchnama by charging Rs 100 to 200 from each farmer and it is going on in the entire district including Tehsil. This type of incident is happening in front of the eyes of the insurance officers and farmers are being looted on a large scale without any hindrance by the crop insurance company.
On behalf of the company, the insurance representative is given a commission of more than Rs 100 in each panchnama, yet the insurance representative is collecting it from the farmers. In Nandgaon Khandeshwar tehsil, so far about 50 percent Panchnama has been completed and lakhs of rupees have been paid to the farmers. The farmers have become miserable even before the heavy rains. He has taken insurance in the past but has not received any compensation, he has also gone to the door of the Farmers Insurance Company and is suffering.
Doubts on the role of Agriculture Department
Despite the crop insurance company being under the control of the Agriculture Department, this kind of incident is happening, now the agriculture department is being questioned. Not only this, insurance representatives from districts like Osmanabad, Nanded are living on rent in Nandgaon and looting the farmers on a large scale by doing Panchnama in the entire tehsil. Along with this, the insurance representative is in touch with CSC and is also doing Panchnama of ineligible people by paying commission to many people. Therefore, there is a demand from the farmers of the tehsil that legal and penal action should be taken against the concerned insurance representatives.
don’t pay farmers
Complaints of demand of Rs 100 to 200 per farmer for Panchnama of crops are being received every day against the crop insurance representative on the phone of farmers. Do not give any kind of amount for Kisan Panchnama to the insurance representative who came from the crop insurance company. If any representative demands advance amount for Panchnama, then the farmers should file a written complaint of the concerned representative in the Tehsil Agriculture Department. Action will be taken immediately against the representative and the company concerned.
