New Delhi Indian Bank, one of the major public sector banks in the Corona era, has taken a relief decision for farmers. The bank has said in its latest decision that the interest rate of gold loan has been cut by half percent. This government bank has reduced the interest rate on the gold loan scheme available for its short time – Bumper Agri Jewel. Earlier the interest rate in this loan scheme was 7.50 percent, while now it has become seven percent.
The decision taken because of this
The bank has taken this decision to help the farmers in the coronary period. This reduction in the interest rate has been done in view of the current situation of epidemic and to provide easy loan at a cheaper rate to the needy farmers. The bank said that with effect from July 22, 2020, the interest rate for agricultural jewelery loan has been fixed at seven percent. This means that every month, an interest of just Rs 583 will be charged per month. Under this scheme, up to 85 percent of the cost of jewelery is given for a period of six months.
