New Delhi: Jaya Bachchan, who owns movable and immovable assets worth 91.65 crore, has been added to the list of ‘farmers' who suffered loss and damages due to untimely rain and hailstorms and are to be provided compensation by the Madhya Pradesh State government.
Many bureaucrats, including a former chief secretary, and a number of senior Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and Indian Police Service (IPS) officers have also figured on the list.
They have lands in Chandanpura, Mindori, Sewaniagaud, Prempura, Mendora and Bisankhedi village. All these villages are in Bhopal district.
State farmers had lost crops in 27,000 villages, after which the government revised its wheat production estimates downwards from 19 million tonnes to 17 million tonnes.
The government will start distributing compensation from May 16 in the bracket of Rs 3,500-50,000. A minister, Indrajeet Patel, has also figured in and will be compensated with Rs 50,000.
He was a candidate in ongoing Lok Sabha elections from Sidhi constituency. An ex-district collector was also among the farmers who will get compensation.
