MUMBAI: Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis today directed officials to take up the task of data submission related to farm loan waiver scheme in a 'mission mode' so that its implementation can be expedited.

The process of collecting information on farmers eligible for loan waiver should be completed in a 'mission mode', he said.

Fadnavis reviewed the progress of data submission in his office and asked officials concerned to speed up the process.

He communicated with the district collectors and chief executive officers of zilla parishads about the issue.

During the meeting, it was revealed that so far the maximum number of farmers who have submitted their forms to seek waiver hail from Jalgaon district.

The government has set up centres in different districts to collect information related to eligible beneficiaries.

"The centres uploading farmer details online would get Rs 10 per person. If a centre is found to be charging from farmers for uploading the data, then it will lose its recognition immediately," Fadnavis warned.

He also reviewed the current crop status in regions like Marathwada and Vidarbha which had to wait for long to get good showers this monsoon season.

The south west monsoon has revived over Maharashtra since the last seven days which is expected to support the kharif crops.

The government on June 24 had announced a Rs 34,000crore crop loan waiver for the state's marginal farmers. Named as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Krushi Sanman Yojana, the scheme is designed to benefit about 89 lakh farmers.
