Agriculture is a main stay of Indian economy. About fifty percent population of India is dependent upon agriculture sector for their sustenance notwithstanding its reduced share in GDP of India. Agricultural production is frequently affected by natural disasters like floods, earthquake, drought, cyclone etc. these events severely affect the income of the farmers through loss in agricultural production as these events are beyond the control of farmers. With the commercialization of agriculture, magnitude of loss due to these events is increasing. The important strategy which can effectively address the risk to output and farm income is agriculture insurance. Since independence the various agriculture insurance schemes have been introduced in the country. The main objective of this paper is to examine the growth and performance of agriculture insurance in India. The farmers who have insured their crops during the rabi season were 78362063 and during kharif season were 192794173 from 1999 00 to 2015 16 under the NAIS.
