The method of calculation and distribution by ELGA of the compensations of 150 million euros, which will be given to the affected farmers of 17 Regional Units, from the Daniel and Elias disasters between 4-11 and 25-30 September 2023, is provided by the ministerial decision which was gazetted.
The compensations for the loss of plant production and/or livestock concern the owners of agricultural holdings in the Regional Units: Argolida, ArcadiaAchaia, Boeotia, Evia, Ilia, Karditsa, Kastoria, Kozani, Corinthia, Laconia, Larissa, Magnesia, Sporades, Messinia, Trikala and Fthiotida.
A basic condition for the payment of the aid is the submission of the Cultivation/Farming Declaration for the loss year 2023 and its payment.
How will they be calculated?
The ad hoc aid will be given, according to the results of ELGA’s damage assessment.
The amount of the aid will be calculated as follows:
for products of plant production according to the formula:
X1= A.A. – A.M.Z.P. where X1: beneficiary aid amount per hectare, in euros (€) AA: the insured value, per damaged crop production product in €/acre, A.M.Z.P.: value of undamaged production in euros per hectare , which is equal to the product A.A.* (100 – Ψ), where Ψ= percentage of damage suffered by the crop according to the corresponding conclusion of EL.GA.A.
for the loss of livestock according to the formula:
X2= A * B, where X2: beneficiary’s aid amount per species/category of animal, A: the number of animals that were lost according to the corresponding conclusion of the EL.GA and B: the insurable value per animal.
It should be noted that the aid is tax-free, non-confiscatable and non-assignable in the hands of the public or third parties, in derogation of any other general or special provision, is not subject to any fee, levy or other retention in favor of the State, is not bound and is not offset against confirmed debts in Tax Administration and the State in general, legal entities under public law, local government organizations and their legal entities, insurance funds or credit institutions and is not counted in the income limits for the payment of any social or welfare benefit.
