ANSWER
MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF AGRICULTURE AND FARMERS WELFARE

(SHRI PARSHOTTAM RUPALA)

(a): Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) has been under implementation in the country since Kharif 2016 season. State-wise details of coverage during, 2016-17 (both Kharif 2016 and Rabi 2016-17) are given in Annexure-I. 

(b): PMFBY was implemented in 2016-17 by the then 16 empanelled General Insurance Companies including all the 5 Public Sector General Insurance Companies. In fact, Public Sector General Insurance Companies share in the total crop insurance coverage was over 50%. Further the data used by the Centre for Science and Environment in its report including on claims reported/settled was not up-to-date at that time. As a principle, insurance covers risk to crops and claims are dependent on the occurrence of natural calamities. Even though 2016-17 was a good crop year, claims over 60% of the premium collected were reported to the insurance companies. 

(c): State-wise and private company-wise details of premium collected and claims paid under PMFBY during 2016-17 are given in Annexure-II.
