It is noteworthy that as per the guidelines issued by the Government of India regarding crop damage, financial subsidy is provided to the affected farmers as per the provisions contained in Revenue Book Circular 6-4.

The percentage of loss is to be quantified based on the total area sown by the farmer under the crops as the case may be.

If a farmer has sown an area of 4 hectare during Kharif / Rabi as the case may be and the loss of 50 hectare in one hectare due to natural calamity has left the remaining three hectares unaffected by natural calamity, then the loss of crop loss is considered as 12.50 per cent.

In this situation the possibility of error exists, so it is necessary that the kharif crop loss is assessed jointly by the Department of Revenue and Disaster Management and the Department of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare and Biotechnology and if more than 33 percent crop loss is caused by the farmer Out of the total area held, the quantum of crop loss should be done by quantitatively estimating the amount of subsidy according to the provisions of the status quo. It is also necessary to ensure that in case of crop loss in one kharif season, the affected farmer will get one time financial grant.
