Growth of Fasal Bima-Growth of Haryana:Alok Agarwal

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 02nd March:- With a view to achieve target of 50% farmers to be covered under Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) by 2019 more and more initiatives are being taken by insurers & the Government. 2016-17 has been the year of lot of activities and the credit goes to Hon'ble Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, Haryana Government and various Insurers.
According to Alok Agarwal, Executive Director, ICICI Lombard General Insurance Company Ltd. that ICICI Lombard is having a great focus on Fasal Bima Yojana and we have decided to use combination of Physical reach (Feet on Street) & Digital Technology to reach the farmers located in 7 districts of Haryana to ensure maximum coverage of both loanee and non-loanee farmers in the Districts allotted to ICICI Lombard.
He further informed that in Haryana, ICICI Lombard has insured 1.8 lakh farmers for Kharif 2016 (mostly Paddy crop) & 1.3 lakh farmers for Rabi 2016 (mostly wheat crop) in seven districts of Palwal, Panipat, Rohtak, Fatehbad, Mewat, Jhajjar and Yamuna Nagar.
During the year 2016 – 17, with the initiative of Central Government duly supported by State Governments and participation of various Insurance Companies, our country has seen very robust growth of Fasal Bima. It is heartening to see that such growth has been achieved in one year. On all India basis, premium collection during the year has gone up from Rs. 5700 Crores (previous year 2015-16) to Rs 21000 Crores (estimated 2016-17). This is an increase of 268% in single year.
Alok  Agarwal further said that our estimates show that this figure will go up to Rs 23000 Crores during 2018-19 and Fasal Bima will become a major part of Indian General Insurance Industry. Alok Agarwal informed that number of farmers insured under Fasal Bima Yojana (Crop Insurance) has touched more than 39 Lakhs (Kharif/ Rabi combined and during 2017-2019 period this number will go up significantly)
Answering the question how ICICI Lombard plans to reach the farmers in villages in Haryana he  informed that the Company is utilising various intermediaries to reach Crores of farmers by utilising the services of various banks (ICICI, other Banks, Cooperative Banks/ Rural Banks/ Gramin Banks), its own branches/ offices, Insurance Broker Firms, Agents, CSC (Common Service Centres) as well as POS. Objective is to reach to each and every farmer, who is residing in 7 districts allocated by Haryana  Government to ICICI Lombard. We are putting special efforts to use local youngsters by creating jobs for them in their own villages. In addition to selling Fasal Bima we will use them for insuring vehicles, tractors, cattle, health insurance & shop insurance. This initiative of Prime Minister Modi will result in generation of employment as well as increase in insurance penetration in rural India. We will provide these representatives with Tablets so that they can complete the proposal.

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 02nd March:- Knight Frank, the independent global property consultancy, today launches the 11th edition of The Wealth Report 2017. The report tracks the growing super-rich population in 125 cities across 89 countries. The Wealth Reports yearly issue provides a unique perspective on the issues that are influencing UHNWI investment and lifestyle decisions. This year’s survey results are based on responses from almost 900 of the world’s leading private bankers and wealth advisors.
Key Takeaways India
Dr. Samantak Das, Chief Economist & National Director-Research, Knight Frank India said thay over the last ten years we have seen annually 500 new UHNWIs being added in India and we expect this number to double to 1000 every year in the coming decade. Out of 40 global cities, Mumbai ranks 11 in terms of future wealth accumulation ahead of Chicago, Sydney, Paris, Seoul and Dubai. In terms of real estate sector investment, the wealthy Indians have expressed their top priority in the Office segment and Logistics also sees a three-fold rise. Even though the residential market in India is reeling under pressure, 40% of wealthy Indians are likely to invest in residential property in India in the next two years while 25% are keen for overseas avenues.
Nicholas Holt, Head of Research for Asia Pacific, Knight Frank Asia Pacific, said that the Attitudes Survey shows us that more Indian UHNWIs are choosing to send their children overseas for secondary and tertiary education. This has property market implications as parents are more likely to purchase property in overseas school or university locations, combining investment with the practicalities of housing their children. The top three overseas markets identified by Indian UHNWIs according to the survey are (in order): the UK, Singapore and the US three of the markets we believe will be the target of Indian property investment going forward.

डॉ. अशोक तंवर ने कहा कि भाजपा सरकार की गलत नीतियों और सरकार की अयोग्यता के कारण आज समाज का प्रत्येक वर्ग दुखी है। किसानों को उनके उत्पादन का लाभाकारी मूल्य नहीं दिया जा रहा जबकि विपक्ष में होते हुए भाजपा नेता ढोल पीट-पीटकर कहते थे कि स्वामीनाथन रिपोर्ट लागू करके किसानों को उचित मूल्य दिया जायेगा। उन्होंने कहा कि राज्य से उद्योग पलायन कर रहे हैं जिससे श्रमिकों को अपना जीवन यापन करने में भारी कठिनाइयों का सामना करना पड़ रहा है और इसके उपर केन्द्र सरकार की नोटबंदी की नीति ने जले पर नमक छिडक़ने का काम किया है। 
उन्होंने कहा कि भाजपा नेताओं द्वारा अपना स्वार्थ सिद्ध करने के लिए लोगो को गुमराह किया जा रहा है और हमारे भाईचारे में सदियों से चले रहे मेलजोल को तबाह करने की कुचेष्ठा की जा रही है। यहां पर ही बस नहीं है यदि कोई व्यक्ति भाजपा की नीतियों की आलोचना करता है तो उस पर राष्ट्र-विरोधी होने की मोहर लगा दी जाती है और आलोचना करने वाले को देश से निकालने का फरमान जारी कर दिया जाता है। डॉ. तंवर ने कहा कि भाजपाइयों द्वारा शिक्षण संस्थाओं के माहौल को भी बिगाडऩे के कुप्रयास किए जा रहे हैं।

दोनों नेताओं ने दोहराया कि एसवाईएल, जाट आरक्षण, गुरूग्राम में जमीन तथा मैट्रो घोटाला तथा भाजपा सरकार की अन्य जन-विरोधी नीतियों के विरोध में 7 मार्च, 2017 को हरियाणा विधान सभा का घेराव किया जायेगा। इन्होंने सभी पदाधिकारियों तथा कार्यकत्र्ताओं से अनुरोध किया कि वे अपने अधिक से अधिक साथियों सहित विधान सभा का घेराव करने पहुंचे।
बैठक में सर्वसम्मति से प्रस्ताव पारित करके पार्टी के कुछ विधायकों द्वारा एक पत्रकार सम्मेलन में हरियाणा प्रदेश कांग्रेस के अध्यक्ष डॉ. अशोक तंवर और कांग्रेस विधायक दल की नेता श्रीमती किरण चौधरी को पद से हटाने का बयान देने की कड़ शब्दों में निन्दा की गई और इस बयान को पार्टी संविधान का उल्लंघन बताया। प्रस्ताव में पार्टी हाईकमान से अनुरोध किया गया है कि पार्टी विरोधी बयान देने के लिए इन विधायकों के विरूद्ध शीघ्रातिशीघ्र अनुशासनात्मक कार्यवाही की जाये।
