  • Pressure by banks leading to farmer deaths? U’khand HC seeks replies from Centre, state, RBI

    Summary: NAINITAL: Uttarakhand high court (HC) on Wednesday sought replies from the central and state governments as well as RBI within 21 days on farmer deaths caused due to pressure mounted by banks for recovery of loans. His family members accused a public sector bank of harassment and mounting pressure on him to repay the loan. Today, the farmer is caught in a vicious debt cycle which often becomes the cause of his death. His family members said that he was under pressure to repay the loan taken from the Gramin Bank. The petition also alleged that despite the deaths, no co-operation was extended to the beleaguered farmers from either the state or central governments.The PIL was filed by Ganesh Upadhyay, a resident of Kichha in Udham Singh Nagar district.
