  20. 20. KISAN MITRA - IMPACT - ATTEMPTED SUICIDE SURVEY To understand Farmer Suicides Kisan Mitra team visited many hospitals and listed down attempted Suicide Farmers and then followed up with each family. This was done in all 3 district and the results when analysed we could uncover various trends & behavioral patterns which we could normally never infer. A few examples are as below: - Overwhelmingly increasing Tribal Farmers especially Gond Tribal Community farmers attempting Suicide - Farmer Suicides whose root cause is Agrarian Distress but few extreme triggers as - Pressure of birth of another Girl Child - A mother Unable to Feed her infant due to her inability to lactate - Inability to provide basic healthcare for family members - Extreme Crop Loss due to Floods etc We are in process of analysing this data & patterns further to work towards prevention of Farmer Suicides and to understand the distress better.
  21. 21. KISAN MITRA - IMPACT - AGRICULTURE, CROP LOSS & INSURANCE ● Received ~500 calls from Vikarabad due to Crop Loss of Paddy & Redgram, followed up by discussions with Scientists & Dist. Admin. ● In the month of August, 2018 many farmers incurred severe crop losses due to heavy rains and many lakhs of acres of crop was affected in Adilabad and Mancherial with variations in the extent of damage like uprooting of plants, soil erosion, sand and pebble casting and borewells filled with mud. ● We followed up with the AOs and AEOs and worked with them closely in the enumeration of the crop loss. Insisted on ensuring proper survey is done in the villages where we received complaints from the farmers that AOs are claiming that there was no loss when there have been crop losses. ● Also raised funds amounting to around 10 lakhs through Milaap.
  22. 22. CROP LOSS - AUGUST 2018 HEAVY RAINS (Adilabad & Mancherial Districts)
  23. 23. KISAN MITRA - IMPACT - MARKETING ISSUES Cotton Market Price: Actively involved in analysis of Cotton Market price trends in Adilabad and worked with the collector in making sure the farmers got the best price in the state from traders and also continued to monitor on a regular basis. Red gram payment delay issues: Kisanmitra was flooded with the calls from Kodangal Mandal regarding Red gram payment delay in the months of March-May. Issue: One farmer from Bulkapur village called KisanMitra in distress and stated that if the payment will not be credited early to his Redgram yield, he will commit suicide along with 10 other farmers from his village. Follow up by Kisanmitra: Kisanmitra immediately sent a message to the collector, and coordinated with DM Markfed with the details of these farmers and the authorities took an action and credited the amount in farmers account with in 2-3 days. There are about 43 issues regarding Market payment delay and KisanMitra continuously followed up with Markfed and helped the farmers in early payment.
  24. 24. Various Farmers & Agri Labourers die to due to Inhalation Poisoning every season and it has increased Rampantly in recent past due to advanced Sprayers etc. The people who survive after treatment also are clueless of what livelihood options they have. KISAN MITRA - IMPACT - ADILABAD - PESTICIDE POISONING KisanMitra Team worked along with Pesticide Action Network (PAN) and trained doctors about treatment protocol. Also Constantly gave feedback to Dist Administration on treatment protocols being followed and corrective measures which saved farmers’ lives.
  25. 25. KISAN MITRA - IMPACT - ELECTRICITY ISSUES Kisan Mitra team was instrumental in getting electricity connection to Gantalagudem a remote tribal (Gond) village in Tandur Mandal, Mancherial. They had struggled for 22 years without electricity before our field team managed to actively follow up with the electricity department to ensure that poles were installed and connections given, within a span of 1 week. Before --- After
  26. 26. KISAN MITRA - IMPACT - PENSION ISSUES (e.g : Mancherial District) ● Kisan Mitra followed up actively with the district administration and tried to get widow pension for around 6 widows of suicide farmers. ● In the 50 requests we had received for pension related issues, we were able to actively follow up with the district administration to get pension successfully for around 30 eligible people. The rest are under verification to check eligibility criteria, which are also being followed up by our field team. Examples: ○ Singam Shetti Rajaiah (68Y) of Nambal Village, Dandepally Mandal reported that two years back he had applied for old age pension. He hadn't received the pension despite submitting the application multiple times. Kisanmitra followed up with MPDO and PD and he has been receiving pension from the past two months. ○ Keshav Goud Kambagami of Saligaon Village, Kannepally Mandal was in receipt of Rs.1,500 disability pension till 2016 and the pension was stopped from Dec-2016. In this regard he submitted SADAREM certificate (POD: 86%) and met Collector and MPDO, but his case wasn't settled. Kisanmitra followed up with MPDO and PD and he has been receiving pension from the past two months. ○ Rajender Mancherla of Avadam Village, Nennel Mandal who is mentally challenged was not getting disability pension. He used to get the pension when the amount was Rs. 200 but he stopped receiving the pension after the government increased it to Rs. 1500. Disable percentage - 40%, But he didn't apply recently and he didn't have any receipt.
  27. 27. KISAN MITRA - VILLAGE STUDY - VENKATRAOPETA, LUXETTIPETA MANDAL, MANCHERIAL Observations: ● We did a survey along with the VRO since many farmers didn’t get PPB and many errors were identified in Rythu Bandhu. There it was identified that 1700 PPB’s were issued in which 600 are clear and remaining 1100 have errors. In this issue we have been following up with Revenue department regarding corrections. ● Interviews with a couple of families in the villages their issues brought out some issues to light ○ Many farmers send their children to private schools (English Medium) and spend more money than they can earn in a year. Government school isn’t functioning properly. ○ Unavailability of doctors in the hospital. Any disease is treated with paracetamol. No emergency services available. ○ Alcoholism is a rampant issue ○ NREGS work isn’t allocated correctly (some farmers got work only for 5 days) ○ Few farmers migrated to Singapore for work due to huge financial debts ○ Disability and other pension issues
  28. 28. KISAN MITRA - VILLAGE STUDY - KOLAMGUDA, HAJIPUR MANDAL Village Profile: ● Kolamguda houses 28 families belonging to Kolam tribe. ● Despite the village belonging to Kolams, all the cultivable lands there belong to the farmers of BC community, registered in their own names. ● Due to dire financial distress, the Kolams were compelled to sell away all their lands and now are left with no option but to work in those very fields as agricultural labourers earning 150 rupees per day if they are women and 200 rupees if they are men, to supplement their livelihood. ● Because of their inability to be able to afford decent housing, two families end up sharing a single house. ● They also mentioned that they had to face attacks from people of the upper caste which they could do nothing about and their helplessness is leading them further into an emotional abyss. ● They don’t have access to affordable medical facilities and many of their children suffer from malnutrition. Their Requirements: ● Access to nutritious food ● Housing for married couples ● Protect themselves from any attacks from people of upper caste ● Financially better their situation by getting agricultural land allocated in their name which they can cultivate themselves and can improve their earnings.
  29. 29. KISAN MITRA - VILLAGE STUDY - KOLAMGUDA, HAJIPUR MANDAL, MANCHERIAL Impact of Kisan Mitra: ● Growing Kitchen Gardens is in Progress. ● School Renovation in Progress. ● Discussing and working towards their Land Rights ● Understanding Health Profile of the Village and work towards improving nutrition.
  30. 30. KISAN MITRA IMPACT - MEDICAL CAMP Pangidi Somaram village, Kotapally Mandal, Mancherial District: One of the main issues in this Tribal Remote Village is about approximately 24 deaths that happened from 2014 with fever and sudden weight loss of the villagers there, sometimes even very young people. Kisan Mitra team followed up this issue with DMHO and he attached us to two doctors who conducted a medical camp and almost 88 villagers attended the medical camp and check ups were done and blood samples were collected for further diagnosis to understand root cause of health issues. Following is an executive summary of a research done by the expert committee on tribal health in India. Please check to understand the scenario in totality and we could discuss further. http://www.nhm.gov.in/nhm_components/tribal_report/Executive_Sum mary.pdf
  31. 31. TENANT FARMERS Tenant Farmers are the worst affected and as per survey done with TISS, ~75% of Farmers who committed suicide are tenant farmers. Sadly they are not even recognised as Farmers. As per 2011 Licensed Cultivators Act every Tenant Farmer has to be recognised and given an ID card and all rights such as Crop Loan, Disaster Compensation etc have to be given. But none of this is being implemented across the state. In Adilabad, KisanMitra team focusedly worked along with Dist Administration and were able to disburse 6000 Loan Eligibility Cards(LEC) to Farmers as well as facilitate Loans to ~1000 farmers.
