Modi govt mulls zero interest on crop loans for farmers who pay on time

Currently, farmers get short-term farm loan of up to Rs 3 lakh at 7 per cent interest rate. However, the interest rate charged is only 4 per cent in case farmers pay their loan within due date. Normally, loans are given at 9 per cent interest rate.
