Bengaluru:  Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy has said that  the State Government has waived off agricultural loans to the tune of Rs. 49,000 crore and a Government Order on the guidelines will be issued soon.

In his opening remarks at a two-day conference of Deputy Commissioners (DCs) and Zilla Panchayat CEOs here today, he said that the DCs have a crucial role in the implementation of this scheme and they must be aware of middlemen misusing the benefits of  this scheme.

He directed all the DCs and  CEOs to implement loan waiver scheme transparently.
