Centre launches DigiClaim for quicker settlement of Crop insurance claims

Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar launched a ‘DigiClaim’ platform under the national crop insurance portal for speedy disbursal of claims to insured farmers. On the occasion, the Minister also transferred an insurance claim totaling Rs 1,260.35 crore through the DigiClaim platform to the insured farmers in Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Uttarakhand and Haryana with a click of a button, an official statement said.

In the current system, there have been several instances of insured farmers’ claims being delayed due to a variety of factors. Taking cognizance of farmers’ welfare and to expedite the claim disbursal process, the Agriculture Ministry has come up with the DigiClaim module, it said.

Tomar said: “It is a matter of pride for our ministry to have taken a revolutionary step in ensuring that farmers can receive claim amounts digitally in a time bound and automated manner, thereby making our farmers Aatmanirbhar and Sashakt.”
