Farmers seeking loan waiver exceed government estimates
Since the Maharashtra government led by BJP Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has announced the farm loan waiver in the state, almost 2.24 lakh farmers in the Kolhapur district have submitted farm loan waiver forms against the government’s claims of 80, 944 beneficiaries in the district.

The office of the Chief Minister (CMO) tweeted the list of beneficiaries as per their districts under the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Shetkari Sanman Yojana 2017. As per this data, 80, 944 farmers in the Kolhapur district can avail the benefits of the loan waiver.

The situation has become quite chaotic as the actual number of forms submitted has crossed the figure published by the state government. Arun Kakade, Kolhapur district deputy registrar (DDR), said, "Around 2.24 lakh farmers have submitted loan waiver forms till August 30. The total number of registrations for loan waiver is three lakh."

The farm loan waiver was declared by the Maharashtra state government in June 2017 after massive protests in the state for around 36 lakh farmers in the state. However, the scheme has yet to be implemented as there are many hiccups surrounding the demarcation of the actual beneficiaries of the farm loan waiver.
