To offer some relief to the farmers hit by unseasonal rains and hailstorm, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has announced a compensation fund of Rs 36 crore for the ryots in the national capital.

The decision was taken at a Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, on Thursday.

An estimated 19,000 acres of farm land has been hit by the rains and around 30,000 to 40,000 farmers will be offered compensation, a government official said.

Earlier, Kejriwal had also announced a compensation of Rs 20,000 per acre of damaged crops.

The government is also planning to provide subsidy to farmers on the purchase of seeds and fertilizers. “The development department is preparing its plan to implement this measure,” the Delhi chief minister had said.
