Debt Relief Family Loan Status Andhra Pradesh
Andhra Pradesh is a state where deaths due to debt are quite common. Every time and again you can read the news of farmers committing suicide because they went into heavy debts and could not pay off the loan. To ensure a better life for such farmers, the government of Andhra Pradesh has come up with Debt Relief Family Loans. Anyone can check the status of their loan.
The government of the state has released the AP Rythu Runa Mafi, that is nothing else but Debt Relief Family Loan for the highly prone districts of the state like West Godavari, Visakhapatnam, Srikakulam, Prakasam, Nellore, Kurnool, Krishna, Kadapa, Guntur, East Godavari, Chittooor and Anantpur.
It was a vow of the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Shri Nara Chandra Babu Naidu that once his government would come to power; he would bring forth this policy of debt relief and provide an actual relief to the farmers of the state, which is known for farmers’ suicide.
It is important to know here the reason for so many suicide deaths of farmers in the state. Andhra Pradesh is quite prone to natural calamities like droughts and cyclones and thus every time farmers work hard to grow some crop during the season, their yields are destroyed due to these natural calamities.
Since these natural calamities affect the yield of crops in the state, farmers are not able to pay back their loans. In return, the bank officials create a constant pressure of farmers to retrieve the loans. Since these farmers are not able to pay back, they get in to depression and do not have any other resort than to end their lives.
A list of those farmers and areas which have been listed under the loan waiver has been released by the state government. The chief minister himself is taking keen interest in the drive. With such noble schemes, we hope that the state government would be able to handle one of the most critical problems of the state, i.e. farmers’ suicide.
