A CSE Media Resource Centre Briefing: Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY): Has it delivered on its mandate?

July 21, 2017

CSE, Core 6A, Fourth Floor, India Habitat Centre, 

Lodhi Road, New Delhi

The Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) is a scheme that has been aggressively promoted by the NDA government as “path-breaking” and “revolutionary”. A new assessment by CSE finds that the scheme faces a number of challenges – ranging from poor awareness about PMFBY among farmers to delays in notification and implementation issues.

CSE invites journalists writing on rural and agrarian issues to a media briefing on this subject. Its latest report -- ‘Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana – An Assessment’ – will be released on this occasion.

CSE will support the travel and stay of selected journalists coming from outside Delhi for this event.

Interested journalists can write with the following details to Hemanth Subramanian of The CSE Media Resource Centre -- hemanth@cseindia.org / 9836748585:
