The Central Government is not aware of how much damage has been done to the farmers and agriculture sector of the country due to the coronavirus epidemic, said the Minister of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Narendra Singh Tomar in the Lok Sabha. In response to a question, he said, 'There is no such income assessment report with the government to ascertain how much the income of farmers was affected due to Corona.'
He also said that whether the income of the farmers will double by the year 2022 or not is not known. In response to another question, he said that the NSSO assesses the income of the farmers, and this organisation last surveyed in 2012-13. Not sure of the new estimate yet, said the Union Minister
