Finding almost 90 per cent of the area cultivated in the district last year to have suffered more than 50 per cent loss, district administration has issued annevari certificates to about 1.58 lakh farmers so that their crop loans could be restructured, District Collector Darez Ahmed announced here on Thursday.
Speaking at the farmers’ grievances day meeting here, he pointed out that the banks had already received a circular that they need not even wait for the annevari certificate from the district collectors for restructuring the loan.
