Crop Insurance Scheme
Collective Investment Scheme. These are financial products where money from a number of different investors are pooled and then invested by a *fund manager according to specific criteria. The scheme or fund is divided into segments called 'units', which are to some degree similar to shares.

The price of a unit is based on the value of the investments the fund has invested in (Net asset value).
