A budget provision of Rs. 5501.15 crore has been made for implementation of Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) during 2016-17.

As per provisions of PMFBY, admissible claims are worked out on the basis of yield data generated from Crop Cutting Experiments (CCEs) submitted by concerned State Governments to the insurance companies.  Hence, the number of beneficiaries (to whom the claims are paid) are known only thereafter.  The cut-off date for receipt of yield data for Kharif 2016 season is one month from the final harvest i.e. 15th December, 2016. Claims are estimated accordingly.

State-wise details of farmers covered under PMFBY/Weather Based Crop Insurance Scheme (WBCIS) are given below.
