Farmers of Uttar Pradesh get shocker of 19 paise loan waiver
Imagine the shock of a marginal farmer, Ishwar Dayal from Bhartana in Etawah, Uttar Pradesh
who was handed over a certificate wherein an amount of 19 paise was waived as part of his
outstanding farm loan.

Many farmers were left reeling under shock where they were handed similar certificates at a
programme held at the district headquarters of Etawah. Another farmer, Rama Nanda got Rs.
1.79 waived while Munni Lal Bholi got his outstanding loan of Rs. 2 waived.

On Sunday, some farmers at Hamirpur had loans waived from Rs. 10 to Rs. 215. There has been
shock and genuine relief in equal measures though. In Etawah, about 7, 000 farmers were handed
certificates and had their loan waiver ranging from Rs. 100 to Rs. 1, 000.

While the Opposition criticized the government, the BJP government stated that they have
waived the actual amount owed by the farmers to the banks. A spokesperson stated - “Where is
the surprise if the government has distributed the certificate to a farmer waiving Rs 100 or even less if that is the amount the farmer actually owed to the bank?” he asked. “After all, we cannot make his dues bigger or smaller. There are also farmers who have had Rs 90, 000 and more of their loans waived”.
