Nanded: 1L rain affected farmers waiting for compensation

The farmers in the Nanded district who incurred heavy losses due to the unseasonal rains between July 26 and 27, 2023 are still awaiting their compensation.

The state government had declared compensation of ₹10,000 each to the families of the rain-affected farmers.

The state government had provided ₹9 crores to the district administration for the compensation, but not a single farmer has received any money from the released funds yet as a result around 1,000 affected farmers have been refrained from the government aid.

The farmers hit by rain during July, 2023. The officers performed the panchanamas of the losses immediately and submitted it to the taluka offices. More than, 8,000 families were effected from the rain. The government sanctioned the funds of ₹9 crores for the compensation of the farmers.

In the list, some beneficiaries were assured the help of ₹10,000 each rain- affected family to be distributed from the contingency funds. However, several of these families have not received the money of these funds until now.

The CITU General secretary Gangadhar Gaikwad had launched several agitations at the district collectorate to get the compensation for the needy farmers, but in vain. Still, the beneficiaries have not received the money.
