Deputy Commissioner M. Kurma Rao has directed the officials concerned to provide proper information to farmers with regard to loan waiver procedures as the State government has announced waiver of Rs. 1 lakh loan each availed of by farmers from cooperative institutions.

He was addressing a meeting of officials in Yadgir on Tuesday. Mr. Rao said that farmers, who are eligible for this benefit, should submit the required documents such as self-declaration with loan account details to the primary agriculture credit cooperative societies concerned. And, officials should educate farmers to ensure that the beneficiaries did not suffer due to lack of information, he added.
