FAME-India Scheme

Posted On: 12 DEC 2018 1:31PM by PIB Delhi

In order to promote manufacturing of electric and hybrid vehicle technology and to ensure sustainable growth of the same, Department of Heavy Industry is implementing FAME-India Scheme- Phase-I [Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid &) Electric Vehicles in India] from 1st April 2015. The scheme, which was initially upto 31st April 2017, has been extended upto 31st March, 2019 or till Notification of FAME-II, whichever is earlier.

The Phase-II of the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid &) Electric Vehicles (FAME-India) Scheme proposes to give a push to electric vehicles (EVs) in public transport and seeks to encourage adoption of EVs by way of market creation and demand aggregation. The draft scheme envisages the holistic growth of EV industry, including providing for charging infrastructure, research and development of EV technologies and push towards greater indigenization. The scheme has not been finalized yet.

Total outlay of Phase-I of the FAME-India Scheme has been enhanced from Rs. 795 Crore to Rs. 895 Crore.

Under Demand Creation focus area, the purchaser of electric and hybrid vehicles is given an upfront reduction in purchase price by the dealer at the time of purchase of xEVs. Since inception of the scheme & till 6th December 2018, the Government has given financial support (demand incentive) to about 2,61,507 electric/ hybrid vehicles. 119 models of vehicles of 27 OEMs got registered under FAME-India Scheme for availing demand incentive.

Since inception of the scheme, several segments have been added to the scheme so as to ensure that more people take advantage of this scheme. In this spirit, support to fully electric buses have been added to the scheme to support electrification of public transport. The positive results of these efforts are borne out by the fact that DHI has so far sanctioned 455 electric buses for 9 cities in a pilot scheme launched on 31st October 2017, which got interest from 44 cities seeking 3144 e-buses.

There is no proposal from Government of India to invest in manufacturing of E-Buses. 100 % FDI by automatic route is permitted in the automobile sector. Further, automobile sector is in deregulated sector and both private sector and public sector are free to carry out investment in the automobile sector, including for manufacturing of Electric Vehicles and E-Buses.

Reduction of Premium of PMFBY

Posted On: 12 DEC 2018 12:12PM by PIB Delhi

Under Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) and Restructured Weather Based Crop Insurance Scheme (RWBCIS), the premium payable by farmers has been substantially reduced and simplified and there is one premium rate on pan-India basis for farmers which is maximum 1.5%, 2% and 5% of sum insured for Rabi, Kharif and annual horticultural / commercial crops, respectively.

Crop insurance is a major risk mitigation tool for the benefit of farmers. Insurance is all about spreading the risk over the period and over the area. Insurers save premium in good seasons/years and pay high claims, if any, in bad years from the savings made in the good years. As against the premium collected from farmers amounting to Rs.4216.04 crore in 2016-17, claims of Rs. 16279.25 crore have been paid to farmers.  Similarly, claims of Rs.16967.92 crore have been paid during 2017-18 (Kharif 2017) against premium collected from farmers amounting to 3038.70 crore.   Details of the premium received by insurance companies and claimed paid to the farmers during last three seasons is as under.

In spite of overall good monsoon during first two years of implementation of PMFBY, the claim ratio during 2016-17 is about 73% and during Kharif 2017, it is about 86%. Moreover, administrative and other cost for insurance company for implementation of the scheme ranges from 10-12%.   Moreover, administrative and other cost for insurance company for implementation of the scheme ranges from 10% to 12% of gross premium. Further, the farmers in most affected areas/States received higher claims and the claim ratio was high in these States viz. Kerala 210% and Karnataka-132%, during Kharif 2016, Tamil Nadu – 287% and Andhra Pradesh 159% during Rabi 2016-17.  Similarly during Kharif 2017, the higher claim ratio is in the States of Chhattisgarh – 425%, Haryana – 201%, Madhya Pradesh – 135% and Odisha – 204%.

Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana

Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana

Posted On: 12 DEC 2018 12:04PM by PIB Delhi

Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) has been under implementation in the country including the States of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana since Kharif 2016 season.

Various measures namely, timelines for settlement of claims, leveraging of technology for assessment of yield by State Government agencies using smartphone/CCE Agri App, integration of all individual farmer data on National Crop Insurance Portal etc. have been taken under PMFBY.  However, due to use of manual process for transmission yield data; late release of their share in premium subsidy by some States like Andhra Pradesh and Telangana; yield related disputes between insurance companies and States, non-receipt of account details of some farmers for transfer of claims etc. settlement of claims in some States has been delayed under the scheme.

To resolve the issue of delay in payment of claims, timelines have been tightened and penalty provision of 12% interest rate per annum by Insurance Company to farmers for delay in settlement claims beyond 10 days of prescribed cut-off date for payment of claims; 12% interest rate for delay in release of State share of Subsidy beyond three months of prescribed cut-off date/submission of requisition by Insurance Companies etc. have been prescribed in the revised Operational Guidelines issued recently.  

Season-wise/Year-wise and State-wise details of farmer enrolled under the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY), since its inception from Kharif 2016 till Rabi 2017-18, are given in Annexure.
