State extends date for filing farm loan waiver requests


Mumbai: Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis has extended the date for online submission of application by farmers for the loan waiver scheme, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Shetkari Sanman Yojana (CSMSSY), up to May 1, 2018. Extension has already given for availing benefits of one-time settlement (OTS) under this scheme up to June 30, 2018.

This is the third extension to the online submission. The BJP-led government has been extending the deadline time and again since the announcement of the scheme in June last year to allow more eligible farmers to get its benefits.
