years of this government and the agri-GDP growth collapsed to just 05 per cent Some regions like Marathwada experienced acute distress But on occasion bad times lead to good policies The Modi government launched a new crop insurance scheme PM’s Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) in February 2016 with a view to de-risk agriculture from the vagaries of nature Kharif 2016 was the first season of this scheme It would be good to evaluate its performance with a view to improve it Before the launch of this initiative the National Agriculture Insurance Scheme (NAIS) and Modified NAIS (MNAIS) were not serving the farmers’ interests well The sum insured under MNAIS particularly for risky crops and districts was meagre It was based either on the quantum of crop loans or on the capping of the sum insured; the crop damage assessment based on crop cutting experiments was time-consuming and compensation to farmers often took several months —very often more than a year The Modi government decided to revamp all this and as per the new PMFBY a technical committee in each district decides the “scale of finance” for the sum insured taking into account all the costs incurred by the farmers The premiums are decided on an actuarial basis without any capping Bids are invited from public and private insurance companies to decide the premiums The premiums so discovered are then subsidised for farmers who pay only two per cent for kharif crops 15 per cent for rabi crops and five per cent for annual commercial crops including horticulture crops The rest is paid by the government divided equally between the Centre and state governments High technology including smartphones GPS drones and satellites will be used for accuracy transparency and faster assessment of damages and settling claims An appropriate evaluation of this scheme demands comparing it with NAIS plus MNAIS over the last three years especially with kharif 2013 which experienced a normal rainfall It also demands comparison with kharif 2015 which experienced a severe drought — a second year in a row drought The weather-based crop insurance scheme is a different one and is continuing in its earlier avatar PMFBY insured 355 million farmers compared to just 121 million in kharif 2013 and 254 million in kharif 2015 under NAIS and MNAIS combined This is a whopping increase: By almost 193 per cent over kharif 2013 and 40 per cent over kharif 2015 Within this as per the Press Information Bureau the number of non-loanee farmers increased by more than six times But these figures need to be probed further before we celebrate the scheme’s success The area insured also increased from 165 million hectares (mha) in kharif 2013 and 272 mha in kharif 2015 to 375 mha under PMFBY But the most spectacular increase has been in the sum insured which went up from Rs 34749 crores in kharif 2013 to Rs 60773 crores in kharif 2015 and now to Rs 108055 crores under PMFBY All these indicators point that the programme is going in the right direction and at the correct pace At this rate India may soon have half of its cropped area insured within three to five years But one needs to straighten out some of the implementation glitches to make it serve farmers well and at a lower cost to the treasury The first problem encountered with this scheme is that the actuarial premium instead of coming down with the increasing scale of coverage has gone up sharply from 98 per cent in kharif 2015 to 149 per cent in kharif 2016 This defies the very logic of insurance that premiums should drop when scale increases On digging deeper we found that the states which completed the tendering process early got premium rates ranging from four to eight per cent but the states which were late got much higher premium rates touching as high as 20 per cent Our discussions with some insurance companies revealed that this happened because companies and their re-insurers had stretched their capacity to the brim and then started quoting abnormally high premiums to make moolah Hopefully with competition in the subsequent seasons these rates will drop significantly even to three per cent once 100 m ha are covered This would bring huge savings to the treasury and the PMO or finance ministry needs to appoint a committee to look into this issue and realise this potential cost savings But the litmus test of any insurance scheme lies in how quickly it can assess crop-damages of farmers and how fast it can settle their claims Luckily in kharif 2016 rainfall was normal at the all-India level However there were pockets (for example eastern Uttar Pradesh Bihar and Assam) which faced floods and farmers lost their crops The assessment of the damages had to be done by eye-inspection Drones could have been easily employed but they were not Under the guidelines smart phones had to be issued to field officials but they were not States had to pay premiums to companies in advance but in many cases they were not As a result only a miniscule of affected farmers got compensation till now All this is not inspiring Lesson: Unless a bold policy is matched by effective implementation it may not deliver fully The government is spending more than Rs 16000 crores on the PMFBY but a “chalta hai” attitude of some states may spoil the show One needs a champion fully committed to the idea of PMFBY to ensure its effective implementation Only then will it truly serve the cause of peasantry Gulati is Infosys Chair Professor for Agriculture and Hussain is former secretary department of agriculture and
