Around 58,770 acres of paddy and other crops have been damaged in the 2023 Yala Season as a result of the inability to provide sufficient water due to bad weather conditions. 

The Government Information Department said that around 53,965 farmers have been affected due to that reason and the Cabinet of Ministers took into consideration a proposal made by the Agriculture Minister Mahinda Amaraweera regarding compensation to the affected farmers.

Despite the difficult financial situation faced by the government, the Cabinet decided to allocate the necessary provisions to compensate the affected farmers under the current crop insurance scheme.
