Punjab Pol Promises Farm Loan Waiver

Mar 17, 2017

India’s Business Standard reported on a chief ministerial candidate in Punjab’s promise of farm debt waivers for drought-stricken Punjabi farmers, quoting IFPRI South Asia Director PK Joshi for analysis. “Given that in the last two years there has been a drought in North India, the new state government should consider such a relief but should keep it limited to small and marginal farmers,” Joshi said.
