Centre assures help to hailstorm-hit farmers

After complete assessment of crops which were battered by hailstorms last year in the state, Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh said the Centre would start providing financial help to the affected farmers soon. “The government has finished conducting the panchnama (assessment) of crops that were destroyed by the hailstorms in the month of December.

The Centre will start disbursing aid within the next 2-3 days,” Singh said. The minister was speaking to reporters in Niphad in Nashik district, after taking a stock of the damaged Rabi crops caused by hailstorms and the recent unseasonal rain. Singh, who was accompanied by the state Agriculture Minister Eknath Khadse, visited Sarole, Ranwad Road, Ugaav and Lasalgaon villages in Niphad taluka of Nashik and spoke to farmers to gauge the damage of their crops.
