Apply money to farmers on animal deaths as well, do so

For farmers, livestock and farming are their only sources of income. The farmer insures the crop to avoid damage from any natural disaster, but often does not even think of livestock insurance, which is considered the basis of farming. The death of an animal due to an illness, weather or accident is more harmful for a farmer. The government has a livestock insurance scheme to compensate for losses from animal deaths. It is a centrally sponsored scheme which has also been implemented in 100 selected districts of the country. This scheme is being implemented regularly in 300 selected districts of the country.

A major part of the premium is borne by the central or state government
If we talk about the cost of milking cows and buffaloes, nowadays a good milking buffalo costs more than one lakh rupees. So if we talk about horses and camels, their value is in millions of rupees. It is therefore necessary that, like other goods, livestock is insured.

Every state is different
It may be mentioned that the state government periodically comes up with various schemes for animal insurance. In particular, a large part of the premium for animal insurance is borne by the central or state government. Animal insurance premiums and coverage amounts also vary from state to state. For example, in Uttar Pradesh, the premium for insurance coverage of 50 thousand cows or buffaloes ranges from Rs 400 to Rs 1000 depending on the breed of the animal.
