3,228 Maharashtra farmers committed suicide in 2015, highest in 14 years


NEW DELHI: As many as 3,228 farmers committed suicide in Maharashtra last year, highest in the last 14 years, Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh said on Friday.

Both the Centre and state governments are implementing various schemes to make farming viable and prevent farmers' suicides due to agrarian reasons, he added.

"As reported by the Maharashtra government, 3,228 farmers have committed suicide and it is the highest since 2001," Singh said in a written reply to the Rajya Sabha.

Maximum suicide cases were reported from Aurangabad at 1,130, followed by Amravati (1,179), Nashik (4,59l), Nagpur (362), Pune (96) and Konkan (2), he said.

"Out of these 3,228 cases, 1,841 cases are eligible for ex-grtia payment, while 903 cases are ineligible. 484 cases are pending enquiry. About Rs 1 lakh has been given to the hiers in respect of 1,818 suicide cases," Singh said.

The Centre has sanctioned Rs 3,049.36 crore relief funds for tackling drought in the state for this year, he added.

In order to prevent farmers' suicide, Singh said the state government is implementing various schemes and both short and long term measures for tackling drought situation.

Under the 'Baliraj Chetna Abhiyan Scheme', the district committee headed by the collector has Rs 10 crore per year at its disposal to take up awareness campaign, de-addiction, health counselling, revival of social support system and such activities to reduce the distress level of farmer families.
