The Gujarat government has doubled the monetary assistance to farmers under the state-run Farmers' Accident Insurance Scheme.

Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel said in Gandhinagar today that if a farmer dies or suffers a permanent disability in an accident, he or his kins would now get Rs 2 lakh instead of the present provision of Rs 1 lakh. A farmer will also be entitled to get Rs 1 lakh instead of Rs 50,000 if he loses one eye or one limb in an accident, he said.

The insurance scheme covers over 2.5 crore farmers who own agricultural land in the state.
