He said farmers were not even getting transportation costs from their crops, forget a fair and remunerative price, after the rains that have lashed several parts of Maharashtra this month.

Officials said rains have caused damage to onions, grapes, pomegranates, mangoes and vegetables in the district and the state government was undertaking loss assessment surveys, called panchnama, to provide relief to those affected.
