The revamped scheme has been termed as Karnataka Raitha Suraksha Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana. In Mysuru district, the scheme covers 17 crops, which include 9 food grains, 3 oilseeds, 1 commercial and 4 horticultural crops. The Government has entered into an agreement with ICICI Lombard General Insurance company for implementation of Crop Insurance scheme. As per norms, all farmers who have been sanctioned crop loans by Banks, will be mandatorily brought under the scheme. However, those loanee farmers who do not want to be part of  the Crop Insurance scheme, have to give an affidavit at least 7 days before and subsequently such farmers will be dropped from the scheme, according to a press release.
