Assam women unhappy with govt’s loan waiver criteria

Reacting to the Assam Government’s decision of announcing an eligibility criteria for all those women who had taken loan from microfinance companies and are seeking a loan waiver, several women of Jamugurihat have said that they are feeling deceived by the government’s announcement.

The state government will not consider those microfinance loans taken by women whose annual family income is more than Rs 1 lakh, for the waiver scheme. The borrowers, who have four-wheelers, will also be ineligible for the proposed microfinance loan waiving scheme.

In Hatinga, Jamugurihat few of the women who had taken loan came together to express their discontent about the government decision and requested Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma to waive loan of all women who had taken loan from micro finance companies and not be selective. They said that the government should stick to their poll promise. The women also said that the government should reconsider their decision as almost every woman are facing problems because of the COVID situation.

Speaking to the media a woman said, "The state government has not considered those microfinance loans whose annual income is more than 1 lakh, who have four wheelers etc. We have been facing lots of problems due to Covid-19 pandemic. We urge the government to consider all women equally for the loan waiver scheme."
