A shocking report has emerged that the number of farm laborers committing suicide in 2020 was higher than in 2019, according to a nationwide survey. This number is said to have increased by 18 percent. The National Crime Commission has released a list of statistics on farmers and farm laborers who committed suicide in 2020.

And in 2019, 4,324 farm laborers committed suicide. But it is a sad fact that the death toll has risen by 18 percent in a single year without declining. In addition, 4,940 farmers who own farmland committed suicide in 2020. However, the death rate has dropped by 3.7 percent compared to the previous year.

In India, 828 tenant farmers committed suicide in 2019 and 639 in 2020. Maharashtra, Karnataka, and Madhya Pradesh have the highest number of farm laborers committing suicide in the past year when the death rate is calculated on a state-by-state basis.

At the same time, 6 landowners in Tamil Nadu committed suicide in 2019, while 76 people committed suicide last year alone, according to a report released by the National Crime Commission.
