Haryana forms boards to free farmers from moneylendersNovember 13th, 2008 - 2:35 pm ICT by IANS
Chandigarh, Nov 13 (IANS) The Haryana government will set up land conciliation boards in various districts of the state to free farmers from the clutches of private moneylenders.”All the farmers who have deposited double or more than the principal amount are eligible to apply for loan concession to the district level board. Such borrowers who are still not free will be helped by the board,” an official said Thursday.
He said the boards will be set up in 21 districts and will have the power to solve such cases.
A revenue officer, a representative of the leading bank and two non-official members will be appointed to each board. The additional deputy commissioner in each district will head it.
Each board will hold monthly meetings to resolve the long overdue cases. Money-lending agencies and borrowers will be invited in the board meetings.
