Expedite loan sanctioning process: DC to bankers

ROING, Jan 19: Lower Dibang Valley Deputy Commissioner Soumya Saurabh has exhorted the bankers operating from the district to expedite the loan sanctioning process so as to benefit the customers under the government schemes.

The DC, who was chairing a bankers meeting here today advised all to keep in mind that the successful implementation of government schemes is a collective effort where the burden of work is shared by all stakeholders. “Instead of shifting the blame, expedite the process of loan sanctioning under the government schemes to the customers,” she added.

She also advised the government departments to make targeted scheme based micro plans and make practical strategies to reach a wider beneficiary base.

Reviewing the status of Atma Nirbhar Krishi Yojana and Atma Nirbhar Bagwani Yojana under the Agriculture and Horticulture departments, the DC stressed on the need for timely sanctioning of loans by the banks.

While stating that the role of government departments did not end with the successful disbursal of loans, she asked the banks to provide a consolidated list of all NPAs and defaulters, which needed to be followed up by the government departments.

During the meeting, the bank representatives, heads of departments and administrative officers discussed the credit to deposit (CD) ratio of the district and status of various state sponsored schemes and centrally sponsored schemes.

The DC also advised all to create awareness on the welfare schemes and pension schemes of the central government. The Chief Manager, LDM SBI Roing and DPO Marto Dirchi also spoke during the meeting. (DIPRO)
