West Bengal Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee, has taken a significant step in aiding farmers with a generous assistance package totaling ₹3,193 crore. This announcement, shared through consecutive social media posts after her administrative meeting, aims to ease the struggles faced by farmers.

Through the Krishak Bandhu welfare scheme, ₹2,900 crore will directly benefit 10.5 million farmers and sharecroppers. Additionally, ₹293 crore has been allocated as compensation for crop losses due to adverse weather conditions.

Banerjee’s proactive approach in ensuring financial support for farmers is commendable. The implementation of schemes like Bangla Shasya Bima, where the government covers the premium for crop insurance, shows her commitment to farmers’ welfare.

Through these initiatives, Banerjee aims to provide timely assistance to farmers, with ₹3,133 crore already disbursed to 10 million affected farmers since the inception of the insurance scheme in 2019.

Furthermore, with the Union finance ministry releasing funds to states and Prime Minister Narendra Modi approving cash-transfer installments for farmers, Banerjee’s actions complement broader efforts to uplift the agricultural sector.

Under the Krishak Bandhu welfare scheme, farmers will receive financial aid for both the Kharif and Rabi seasons, ensuring sustained support throughout the agricultural calendar. Additionally, families of deceased farmers will receive compensation, enhancing social security measures.

Banerjee’s dedication to the economic prosperity and social security of farmers underscores her commitment to improving rural livelihoods. Through these initiatives, she aims to create a conducive environment for agricultural growth and prosperity in West Bengal.
