      Government increases farmers loan repayment dates due to limit cash availability

        Government increases farmers loan repayment dates due to limit cash availability

        Following the recent demonetization of Specified Bank Notes (SBNs) the Government is seized of the constraints faced by the farming community in repayment of loan dues within the prescribed time limit.

        Appreciating the requirement for some more time by the farmers to repay their loan dues, the Government has on the lines of RBI circular dated 21st November, 2016 decided to provide an additional grace period of 60 days to such of the farmers, whose crop loan dues fall due between 1st November, 2016 and 31st December, 2016 and if such farmers repay the same within 60 days with effect from the date on which the repayment was due, they will be eligible for prompt repayment incentive for 2016-17.

        With a view to provide stimulation to the rural sector and farming community, the Government provides crop loans at subvented rates of interest @ 7 percent per annum at the ground level. An added incentive of 3 percent per annum is provided to the farmers for prompt repayment of loans within due date and upto a maximum period of one year.

        The prompt payee farmers in effect avail short term crop loans @ 4  percent per annum. This prompt repayment incentive however does not accrue to those farmers who repay after one year of availing such loans.
