  • State data for 2019 shows Maharashtra continues to lead with more than 3,900 agricultural suicides, of which 2,680 (65%) are farmers and the rest are agricultural workers.
  • Next come Karnataka (1992), Andhra Pradesh (1,029), Madhya Pradesh (541), Telangana (499) and newcomers to the Punjab list (302).
