MAHARASHRA CM FADNAVIS SURPRISED AS 813 FARMERS ARE ON LOAN WAIVER LIST FROM MUMBAI CITY :

Mumbai city and its suburbs are home to as many as 813 farmers on loan waiver list, a figure which has “surprised” Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis who has ordered a scrutiny before sanctioning the waivers.  These farmers figure in the list of probable beneficiaries eligible for benefits under the Rs 34,000-crore loan waiver scheme announced by the state government last month.  The Mumbai city and its suburbs are urbanised areas, leaving little scope for farming activity in the country’s commercial nerve centre.  A district-wise list of beneficiary-farmers, released by the chief minister on Twitter, includes names of 694 cultivators from the Mumbai city and 119 from its suburbs.  The Rediff.com : 4th.
