Decision in this regard was taken at the CCEA meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in New Delhi.
This relief package will help farmers to be better equipped to deal with challenges posed by delayed and aberrant monsoon. It will also support the state governments to initiate immediate remedial measures to save standing agricultural crops and perennial orchards in rainfall deficient districts.
