The objective behind this selfie or photo contest is to appreciate the farmers who have insured their crop under the PMFBY and to encourage other farmers for getting crop insurance in the upcoming Rabi 2021 with PMFBY.
The flagship crop insurance scheme of the Government of India – the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) – has completed five years since its launch in 2016. Providing a comprehensive insurance cover against failure of the crop and thus, stabilising the income of the farmers, this scheme covers over 5.5 crore farmer applications on an average each year. ‘Meri fasal, bimit fasal’ is a selfie/photo contest showcasing the faces of worry-free farmers who have insured their crop under PMFBY scheme.
