Pune: While the State government is yet to provide loan waiver to the majority of the farming community, the government has released videos and booklets of beneficiaries of the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Shetkari Sanman Yojana. 

The government has claimed that the fiasco was a fallout of errors of the IT department. While government officials have chosen to stay tight-lipped on the issue after the fiasco, the government has issued booklets and videos of the beneficiaries through the loan waiver scheme. During Diwali, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had assured that 70 per cent of the farmers will get the loan waiver before November 15 but failed to do so due to the several goof ups.

On Tuesday, the district information officer of Pune district informed that the loan waiver of Rs 311 crore has been deposited in bank accounts of 99,800 farmers in Pune district. Rajaram Kakde, a farmer, said that he was benefitted to the tune of Rs 77,000 through the scheme and has thanked the government. Another farmer, Arjun  Kadam, was benefitted to the tune of Rs 66,000 through the scheme. Many members of the farmers’ group have claimed that loan waiver is the responsibility of the government and they should not be boasting about it.
