During the meeting, the insurance cover to 15,500 fishermen and the distribution of 1200 cycles and 20 auto rickshaws to fishermen for mobility were discussed threadbare. The meeting was informed that the scheme for the fisherman was being implemented on the ground and will be completed in a time bound manner.
