Mukhya Mantri Kisan Sahay Yojana has been announced by the Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani. The yojana has been announced for the current Kharif season and all farmers of the state will be covered under this scheme. Farmers would not have to pay any premium or registration process for the scheme.
The Mukhya Mantri Kisan Sahay Yojana will replace the existing crop insurance scheme. Hence, those farmers who have already paid the premium for the existing scheme will receive the refund. Tribal farmers would also be a part of this scheme as compared to the previous one in which they were excluded.
