Telengana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao announced a mega health-cum-life insurance scheme for farmers of the state at ‘Farmers Coordination Committee’ meeting in Karimnagar. Under this scheme, the ryots would be provided a cover of ₹5 lakh per annum for healthcare and hospitalization as well as in case of death.

The state government would allocate ₹500 crore for this insurance scheme in the upcoming Budget Session. The scheme is stated to benefit a total of 77 lakh farmers in the southern state. The families of these farmers will be paid the amount if the farmer dies of any accident or natural cause.

“The state government will pay the entire premium on behalf of the farmers,” the chief minister said, adding that state Finance Minister Etela Rajendra has to give his final nod for the scheme to be implemented.

The Chief Minister also informed that the insurance application forms would be sent to the villages soon and directed the FCC members to ensure that it is filled by every farmer of the state.

The announcements came in response to a farmer’s query seeking financial security for his family members. Telangana Rhythula Ikya Vedika (TRIV) who has been battling for farmer’s welfare have welcomed the decision and urged the government to provide pension to farmers who have crossed 60 years of age.

TRIV President, Venkat Reddy said,“CM’s announcement had brought much sought after respite to the farming community, who otherwise incurred huge amount for their medical treatment.”
