Maharashtra extends deadline for online loan waiver applications

Maharashtra extends deadline for online loan waiver applications”

The Maharashtra government on Thursday night extended by a week the deadline for farmers to apply online for farm loan waivers.

Deshmukh was not in favour of extending the deadline earlier as the government wanted at least three weeks time for verification of the applications, so that they would be able to dispense the waivers around Diwali. The applications will now be accepted till September 22.

Devendra Fadnavis' office took to Twitter to announce the government's decision on the extension. "The chief minister has instructed that the date to receive online applications for the loan waiver scheme be extended by seven days". Of this seven million, 4.5 million farmers applied online, according to an official at the department of cooperation. After discussion with chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, we have chose to extend it by seven days. "Hence, they have extended the deadline", NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik said.

"It appears as if the government wants to delay the disbursement of money to farmers". Of the total 13.6 million farmers in the state, the Maharashtra government is targeting almost 9 million for the benefits of the loan waiver.

The Fadnavis government has stated that it would make sure that only eligible farmers get the loan waiver relief. The Aadhaar-linked online enrollment process, the government claimed, helped it filter eligible farmers from fake beneficiaries.

The cooperation department official quoted above said the departments of cooperation, revenue, agriculture, and information technology would now sit together with the bankers to sift through these online applications and determine eligibility. The deadline for the online applications was extended after complaints about the technical glitches and long queues at many centres.
