In case of loss of crop or death of animals, individuals can claim benefits. A region with a low population density and in which at least 75 percent of the population of a male is included is agriculture comes under the rural section. Because of the financial instability of individuals living in rural regions and the death of cattle, crop failures, etc, the Indian Government launched different schemes for the profit of the rural section. These schemes are united with the Rural Development Program and financially backed up by the State and Central Governments. 

As per Section 32B and 32C of the Insurance Act (1938), the insurers expect to offer a fixed percentage of businesses to individuals living in social, unorganized, informal, the rural sector, backward, and economically susceptible sections, as stated by the regulatory authority (IRDAI). A regulation was issued to further implement sections 32B and 32C that made it compulsory for the insurers to underwrite business equivalent to 2 percent of the full gross premium for the 1st financial year, 3 percent of the full gross premium for the 2nd financial year, and 5 percent for the full gross premium from the 3rd financial year onwards in the rural area.
