Maharashtra announced drought in 151 tehsils in 26 districts
01 November 2018 Current Affairs:

Maharashtra government has announced severe and medium-scale drought in 151 tehsils in 26 districts. The announcement will hold for the next six months. Out of the 151 tehsils, 39 come under the ‘severe drought’ category while 112 are medium-scale areas.
The declaration is based on the Centre’s drought manual of 2016. The government asked the District Collectors to not collect land revenue from farmers, implement a 33% subsidy on the electricity bill of agriculture pumps, kick start employment guarantee scheme, and exempt school and college fees for students from these tehsils. Farmers will get financial aid and government is likely to credit Rs.6,800 per hectare to farmers with non-irrigated farms and Rs.13,000 per hectare to those with irrigated farms.
