COLOMBO (News 1st); The Cabinet of Ministers had previously granted approval to prepare an appropriate scheme of compensation in consultation with the General Treasury to pay a compensation of Rs.25/- per 1kg of paddy in order to secure the income level of farmers who affect due to declining of paddy harvest during the Maha season 2021 / 2022.

Accordingly, a methodology has been prepared to pay the compensation that is calculated based on the relevant criteria as an evaluation incentive limited to an extent of the agricultural area of 05 acres to the maximum so that small-scale farmers, as well as small and medium level farmers, would be able to obtain the relevant incentive allowance.
