Ranga Reddy district Collector A. Vani Prasad on Thursday said the government would extend help to the farmers who suffered losses in the sudden hailstorm that wreaked havoc in Chevella and Moinabad mandals on Tuesday night.

While inspecting the crop damage in the mandals, she asked the officials concerned to make arrangements for disbursement of compensation into the bank accounts of the farmers.

Crop estimates

Officials should prepare estimates on the crop loss and make sure that all the farmers open bank accounts to receive the compensation, she said. The heavy hailstorm damaged carrot, papaya, mint and cabbage crops, besides killing several animals.
