Chennai: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K.Stalin today urged Union Minister for Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare Narendra Singh Tomar to extend the cut off date for crop insurance enrolment by farmers till November 30.

In a Demi-Official letter to Tomar, copies of which were relesed to the media here, he said he wish to bring to the Union Minister’s kind notice to an urgent request of the farmers of delta districts of Tamil Nadu relating to Crop Insurance.

“Yesterday (14-11-2022), I visited Mayiladuthurai and Cuddalore districts to review the areas affected due to unprecedented North east monsoon rainfall. I observed that the enrolment of farmers during Special (Samba / Thaladi/Pishanam) season which started from September 15, 2022, was proceeding well, but could not be taken up continuously as a large number of farmers were not able to access the services of Common Service Centres & Financial Institutions due to continuous holidays for festivals like Navaratri & Diwali followed by incessant rains and most of the rivers were also in spate due to Northeast monsoon and resultant power disruption”, he said.

Hence, the farmers in these districts have represented to extend the cut-off date from November 15.11 to November 30, as the sowing of Paddy II in the current year is delayed, Stalin said.

“Hence, I request the Government of India to extend the cut-off date for enrolment of Paddy II (Samba/Thaladi/Pishanam) crop growing in 27 districts from 15.11.2022 to 30.11.2022, which will help a large number of farmers of major paddy cultivating districts
viz., Thanjavur (I & II), Nagapattinam, Mayiladuthurai, Tiruvarur (I & II), Cuddalore, Pudukottai (I & II), Madurai, Karur, Salem, Tiruppur, Kancheepuram, Chengalpattu, Ramanathapuram (I & II), Theni, Trichy, Ariyalur, Vellore, Ranipet, Tirupathur, Tiruvannamalai, Erode, Dharmapuri, Villupuram, Tiruvallur, Kallakurichi, Perambalur and Sivaganga”, he added.
