Sharad Pawar seeks complete farm loan waiver in Maharashtra

Malik accused the BJP-led government of not paying adequate attention towards fodder camps and water arrangements for the livestock in the drought-hit areas. “Farmers’ orchards have become dry, which means heavy losses for them. Therefore, a complete loan waiver must be given,” Malik added. In June 2017, the Fadnavis government had announced a scheme, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Shetkari Sanman Yojana, to write off unpaid farm loans amid rising incidents of suicide by cultivators due to crop failures or falling prices and rising input costs. At that time, the size of the loan waiver was pegged at Rs 34,022 crore. In February this year, the government had said as part of the scheme, a sum of Rs 24,000 crore has been sanctioned for 51 lakh farmer accounts and of this, Rs 18,036 crore already transferred to over 43 lakh agriculturists.
