The Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives has urged farmers to register their households quickly with the state, if they want to be eligible for the government’s Bt15,000 monthly handouts and other Covid-relief measures.

The ministry revealed that more than one million of about 7.5 million registered farming households had failed to update their registrations in the last three years.

Farming households who fail to update their registration for three consecutive years after June 23, 2017 will lose their status and be unable to receive associated rights, warned the ministry.

Of the 7,522,003 registered farming households, data has only been updated for 6,196,346 households.
