agro-irrigation projects Related News Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Thursday urged national and commercial banks to evolve a mechanism to expand their crop-loan lending to reach out to a larger number of farmers with small and marginal land holdings with an aim to transform the farm sector and make farmers self-reliant He also urged the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) to expedite the process of funds for agro-irrigation projects Saying that the government’s policy reforms to restructure loans had helped bring 7 lakh farmers in the credit net Fadnavis speaking at the annual kharif meeting here said “I must admit the numbers should be at least three times more in the coming years” The government has already cut interest rate on loans from 12 per cent to 6 per cent coupled with extending the repayment period from three to five years Moreover farmers don’t have to pay interest in the first year for which the government stood as the guarantor Share This Article Related Article At the meeting Fadnavis expressed concern over 60 per cent farmers failing to avail the institutional credit loans The biggest challenge for the government and financial institutions is to reach out to these farmers who have no access to bank loans As a result they are forced to depend on money lenders who further push them into the debt trap “The RBI’s concern that banks cannot be coerced into giving loans is understandable …banks are bound to be governed by norms of loan recovery Yet I believe national and commercial banks should reconsider loans to farmers beyond obligation or duty The urgency to enhance loans to small farmers instead of concentrating on big and wealthy farmers needs to be adjusted through course corrections” Fadnavis said “Let us not look at loan allocation to farmers as an obligation While there are issues related to loan recovery overall statistics show bank loans to the agro-sector have increased every year But it does not commensurate with more farmers availing the loans Which means a handful of big farmers are getting bigger loans” he said While asserting that the state had already allocated more than Rs 18000 crore to tackle the farm crisis in drought-hit Marathwada and Vidarbha he said “There is no paucity of funds” Referring to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD)’s prediction of early monsoons he said “The 133 lakh works under the Jalyukta Shivar will give good results even in moderate rains” The government has urged district officials to speed up the Jalyukta Shivar works in the

station officials said projects for improving the rail network on this line have been sanctioned However Arun Arora Delhi divisional railway manager said it is not possible to introduce another train on the route “Shamli-Noli-Delhi is a single line network in a saturated space If we introduce more trains it will not benefit anyone Trains will be delayed for hours However a project for line-doubling has been sanctioned” he said Arora added that the Railways initially struggled to identify the section where a bulk of passengers boarded the train because many of them travel without tickets “After we launched ticket-checking drives we found that most passengers were on this route” he said He also said that the responsibility of avoiding accidents lies with people too “As per the Railways Act when coaches are full people should wait for the next train” said Arora But another senior official claimed many people stand near the doors even when there is space inside “Some people only stand near the doors Even when we tell them not to do so they don’t budge” he said Growing anger On January 20 this year many passengers protested at Noli station over the late arrival of trains prompting the Railways to take note of the problem The Government Railway Police also filed a case against two persons residing in Loni under sections 307 (attempt to murder) 147 (rioting) 148 (armed with deadly weapon) and other sections of the IPC Officials also added that this section is prone to crime with several cases of robberies being reported According to official records four gatemen have been beaten up since 2015 by “gate dashers” Officials also said many accidents happen because people don’t stop at the level crossing when a train is inbound The Indian Express caught up with a gateman at Noli level crossing — 200 metres from Noli station Harvir Singh (55) who has been manning the railway level crossing for the last three years said he brings down the barricade as soon as he gets a call from the Noli station master Singh who works from 8 am to 4 pm said dealing with the public is the toughest part of his job Gate-dashing — crossing the level crossing when it is being closed — is a common sight on this line he added “Sometimes when people wait on both sides they become impatient Once a man came to me and told me to open the barriers even though the train was arriving I try not to argue even when commuters hurl abuses at me” he said He added that sometimes people tamper with the rubber tube that links the coaches “They do this so that the train stops and their relatives or friends can catch up But who will risk saying something to people in overcrowded trains” said Singh adding that he is lucky he has not been roughed up so far For all the latest
