“Livestock insurance in India is a crucial aspect of agricultural risk management, particularly for farmers who depend on livestock for their livelihoods. Despite government initiatives, there are challenges in the implementation of livestock insurance schemes in India. These include issues related to awareness among farmers and the availability of veterinary services in rural areas. Limited access to veterinary services and infrastructure in rural areas affects the quality of healthcare for livestock. Many farmers, especially in rural areas, lack awareness about the benefits of livestock insurance and how it can protect their livelihoods. The partnership between AIC and CSC will mitigate these challenges and empower farmers in the remotest corners of the country.” Said Sanjay Kumar Rakesh.

Both AIC and CSC express their commitment to empowering farmers through innovative insurance solutions, thereby contributing to the overall growth and sustainability of India's agriculture sector.
