Chief Minister Chouhan informed the Prime Minister Modi that 13 districts and 12 tahsils of the state have been declared drought affected. Committees have been formed by the State Government to assess the loss occurred due to the drought. The state government is providing all possible help to the farmers from its own resources. Chouhan requested the Prime Minister for central government’s assistance to tackle the drought situation.

Chouhan informed the Prime Minister in detail about the Mukhya Mantri Kisan Bhavantar Bhugtan yojana being implemented in the state. He informed that the farmers get selling prices of some agriculture produces like soybean, moong, urad less than the minimum support price. Therefore, farmers do not get reasonable prices of their produces. The amount of difference will be deposited by the state government directly through the scheme in the bank accounts of the farmers to facilitate them to get reasonable price for their produces. Furthermore, Chouhan informed that the scheme will be started from October 16, 2017 in the state. Farmers are required to get themselves registered in this scheme. Chouhan expressed the hope that the farmers could get reasonable rates of the crops if the state and the center together implement the Bhavantar Bhugtan Yojana. The Prime Minister Modi praised the scheme.
