A Mathura farmer had received a measly loan waiver of one paisa as a defunct bank account of his had been automatically taken into consideration under an Uttar Pradesh government scheme, a senior official said.

District Magistrate Arvind Malappa Bangari said Chiddi Singh would get his due waiver of Rs one lakh after he gets his functioning bank account linked with the Aadhaar card.

Bangari said that while waiving the loan in first phase, only bank accounts linked with the Aadhaar card were taken into consideration.

According to the DM, Singh had opened an account with the Punjab National Bank in Govardhan in 2011. Due to irregularities, the account was "restructured" and a different account was opened with the bank, he said.

Since his first account was linked with the Aadhaar card, it was selected automatically. Since a loan of Rs 0.01 was shown on March 31, 2016, a waiver of 1 paise was given, he added.'

"As the restructured account of Chiddi Singh shows loan of Rs 2,23,222 he will get the benefit of Rs one lakh after this account is linked to the Aadhaar card," Bangari said.
