Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray announced in the Assembly on Saturday that farmers' loans of up to Rs 2 lakh would be waived in the state.

"Crop loans outstanding up to September 30, 2019, will be waived by my government. The upper ceiling for the amount is Rs two lakh. The scheme will be called Mahatma Jyotirao Phule loan waiver scheme," Thackeray said.

Besides, a special scheme would be offered for the farmers who repay their loans on time, he said.
