Only half the money used from farmers loan waiver

In June 2017, finance minister had announced a a waiver of 34,000 crores for 8,00,000 farmers.

This was under Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Shetkari Sanman Yojana which is a farmer's loan waiver scheme.

But only 16,498 crores have been given to 3.78 lac farmers.

Opposition parties have demanded for clarification from the government as the data released by Direct Benefit Transfer portal seems exaggerated.
