Crop insurance to farmers within two weeks: Odisha govt
"There has been a delay in payment of insurance amount to the affected farmers. The delay was mostly due to contradictory reports. However, the government is taking steps to provide insurance amount to affected farmers within two weeks," Cooperation minister Damodar Rout told the Assembly while replying to an adjournment debate on the state's alleged failure to release insurance to farmers.
Rout said the state government has sent the required report to the central government for release of its share in the insurance. Photo: IANS
