SRIKAKULAM: District collector Gaurav Uppal asked the bankers to reschedule the farming loans taken by the farmers for Rs 1 lakh during the last kharif season between April 2013 to October 2013, by September 30. Addressing a review meeting with the bankers on the waiver of farming loans issue Monday, the collector directed all the bank officials to feed the complete data of the farmers by September 25. He also directed the bankers to take a copy of the Aadhar card and ration card from the beneficiaries. Some of the banks have still not completed the data processing due to the lack of complete information, including not matching the Aadhar card details against the beneficiary’s. Discussing the issue, the collector asked the bankers to take the help of the assistant informatics officer (AIO) to match the details of the beneficiary with the documents.
The collector also gave the AIO’s mobile number 9000951703 to the bankers. The collector informed the bankers that he would review the progress of the waiver of farming loans every day.
