District Magistrate Ghaziabad, Ritu Maheshwari has exhorted the banks to hand out loans to eligible candidates, especially applications received under Pradhan Mantri Rozgar Srijan Yojana and other such schemes in a meeting held with bank officials. In fact, she said in clear terms to the bank officials present that they should better be ready for penal provisions against them if they do not release loans to eligible candidate within a week’s time.
Maheshwari was especially furious to note that several such applicants who had applied for loans were waiting frustratingly to get them released, due to one reason or the other. She said that this attitude of the bank employess amounts to harassment and she would not hesitate to take action against the bank managers if need be. In this regard the working of SBI was found to be unsatisfactory.
