ITANAGAR, February 12: Chief Secretary Naresh Kumar said on Saturday that the lending process under the Atmanirbhar Krishi Yojana (ANKY) and Atmanirbhar Bagwani Yojana (ANBY) should be made more systematic and user-friendly.
Kumar said this during a meeting here with representatives of banks and government stakeholders.
The online loan processing service under the two programs is being prepared, and the CDs of Lohit, Tawang and Papum Pare have been given the responsibility of developing the software in this regard. They will be assisted by a team from the NIC and officers from the agriculture and horticulture departments. The team was tasked with completing the task by March 18.
“The software should be general in nature, so that other departments can use it for Indian government and state government beneficiary-oriented projects and programs in their departments,” Kumar said.
It has been decided that the penalties for the remaining accepted applications under ANKY and ANBY should be ready for payment to beneficiaries by February 20 or 21.
A total loan of Rs 32.11 crores was disbursed to different SHGs and individuals across the state on February 5 under ANKY and ANBY.
Among others, Commissioner of Agricultural Production Rajeev Verma, Secretary of Agriculture and Horticulture
Bidol Tayeng, Regional Director of SBI, DK Mahato, and senior executives from Apex Bank and Arunachal Pradesh Regional Rural Bank attended the meeting. (CS PR cell)
