Scheme (RWBCIS) have been launched from Kharif 2016 season after thorough review of the
then extant schemes of National Crop Insurance Programme (NCIP), which had three component
schemes namely, Modified National Agricultural Insurance Scheme (MNAIS), Weather Based Crop
Insurance Scheme (WBCIS) and Coconut Palm Insurance Scheme (CPIS) which was implemented
from. 2013-14. In addition, National Agricultural Insurance Scheme (NAIS) which was to be withdrawn after implementation of NCIP, also remained under implementation till 2015-16. CPIS also continued to be implemented and Unified Package Insurance Scheme (UPIS) was launched on pilot basis in 45 districts from Kharif 2016.

all the farmers both loanee and non-Loanee.

commercial/horticultural crops. Besides above perennial commercial/horticultural crops can be covered under RWBCIS and CPIS is being implemented for coconut growers. However, as per provisions of the schemes State/UT Governments notify the crops in their respective areas. State-wise details of crops notified under PMFBY and RWBCIS during 2016-17 are at Annexure-I. 

Government of India has been persuading the States/UTs from time to time in various meetings
and through letters at various levels to notify all eligible crops and areas under the crop insurance schemes for the benefit of the farmers of the State.
