Farmers sign up online for COVID-19 payout



BANGKOK(NNT)-Online registration is now open for farmers to receive payouts to mitigate disruption to their output, by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Bank for Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives (BAAC) yesterday put the registration website online, while saying that applicants don’t need a savings account with the BAAC to be eligible.

The registration website for farmers’ COVID-19 relief payout has been online since 8 p.m. yesterday, allowing farmers to register for the COVID-19 pandemic relief payout, according to a Cabinet resolution on 28th April.

Farmers need to enter their national ID number, their mobile phone number, and savings account number, along with other personal information in the registration process. Farmers are however, not required to have an account with the BAAC in order to receive the money.

After the online registration, no further action is required for farmers who enrolled on the national farmers database in 2018 and 2019. They will have the relief money transferred to their account after verification by the BAAC.

Farmers who enrolled in the national farmers database before 2018 however, will need to report to their community leaders or village agricultural volunteers, or at the district agricultural office where their farm is located by 15th May.

Farmers who have never enrolled on the national farmers database must do so by contacting their community leaders or village agricultural volunteers, or at the district agricultural office where their farm is located 15 days after starting their cultivation, but by 15th May.

The first payouts will be deposited on 15th May, with a target to transfer the money to 1 million farmers daily.
