'Would need police protection for this huge amount...': farmer gets ₹53 as crop loss payout

A Maharashtra farmer, Dilip Rathod, humorously requested police protection after receiving a meager ₹52.99 insurance payout for crop loss.

'Would need police protection for this huge amount...': farmer gets ₹53 as crop loss payout

A Maharashtra farmer Dilip Rathod from Shivani village in Ghatanji tehsil of Yavatmal received ₹52.99 as an insurance payout for the crop loss that he suffered due to unseasonal rains. As the farmer received this amount, he wrote a sarcastic letter to the Yavatmal superintendent of police in which he mentioned that he needs police protection.

He mentioned in his letter that he requires at least six personnel to ensure he could safely take the huge amount home. The farmer's letter was shared with the media by NCP MLA from Katol Anil Deshmukh outside the Vidhan Sabha on Monday.

Rathod also mentioned in his letter that with the huge amount he received as payout for crop loss, he would be able to repay the farm loan and spend some money on the treatment of his ailing wife.

It was also mentioned that with this princely amount, he would like to go tour Guwahati. The letter reads, "The ₹52.99 payout is a huge amount for a poor farmer like me and now I am worried about taking it home. I have brought my iron safe on a bullock cart to the collector’s office to take the payout home. But I am apprehensive as many people are possibly eyeing the amount."
