But we have the figure disbursed by the banks on that date Rs 439 crore Since the banks couldn’t have disbursed more money than they would have received it is safe to assume that the government would have transferred Rs 439 to banks not more From Rs 439 crore on to Rs 19537 crore is 4450 percent jump in ten days That is a scorching pace especially considering that no progress was made between 16 October (when the attempt to prepare an error-free list of beneficiaries blew up in the government’s faceas reported exclusively by Firstpost) and 25 November So what explains the sudden gush of positive results Exit Aadhaar From the beginning Maharashtra’s farm loan waiver was going to be different from that of other states for two reasons: That it was the biggest loan waiver scheme by any state That it would be linked to Aadhaar to eliminate leakages In June Fadnavis set the size of the loan waiver at Rs 34022 crore based on information provided by the SLBC Banks had then put the total number of defaulters at 89 lakh A cursory check revealed lakhs of ghost accounts prompting the government to seek a revised list from the SLBC The revised list now seeded with Aadhaar shrunk to just 7729 lakh It thereby brought down the cash outgo for the government from Rs 34022 crore to Rs 24000 a whopping Rs 10000 crore saving as reported in this Firstpost report This underscored that Fadnavis was right not to trust the banks and to insist on Aadhaar-linkage The government formally launched the scheme in August To ensure a two-level verification mechanism farmers were also asked to separately apply for the waiver citing their Aadhaar number When both the lists were run through a software to come up with a masterlist of beneficiaries it turned out that even the fresh list submitted by the SLBC was full of errors It corrupted the software and details of only 69832 beneficiaries matched (green list) With an error percentage of more than 95 the entire process was vitiated That was on 16 October From then till 25 November the government had been struggling to make headway (read the section “what went wrong” in this report) But the process had not moved an inch costing VK Gautam principal secretary IT his job perhaps unjustifiably But from 26 November things began to move at supersonic speed The green list of beneficiaries grew from 69832 to 1325 lakh to 1749 lakh and then 41 lakh in all of ten days It was as if the government had found a magic formula to identify correct beneficiaries A dead giveaway It was not magic of course The government had decided to dine with the devil the banks It had junked its elaborate two-level system of verification Out went Aadhaar-linked validation Fadnavis’s pet plan The government went back to what it could have done to begin with but did not want to do because it did not trust the banks: it decided to rely entirely on the data supplied by the banks and quickly transferred Rs 19537 crore (as of 6 December) to the banks From justified distrust in the banks to complete dependence on the banks the government had made a quick U-turn without making any public announcement The government has not officially announced the burial of the Aadhaar validation process But it can be easily deciphered from a letter that the chief minister is believed to have written to the SLBC complaining about how their tardiness had grounded his plans In an unsourced report The Hindustan Times writing about Fadnavis’ meeting with the SLBC on 7 December also reported about a letter that the CM had written to SLBC asking among other things the banks to give the government a “district-wise list of beneficiaries” to whom they were releasing the funds The Times of India also reported about the CM’s letter The two reports remain undenied by the chief minister’s office The fact that the government was seeking the district-wise list of beneficiaries from the banks is a dead giveaway that the government had ceded control over the list of beneficiaries to the banks and was releasing funds without being fully conversant with who it was going to A far cry from the strict validation process envisaged under the Aadhaar-linkage plan and an unavoidable U-turn to skirt steep political consequences In making this U-turn the government achieved three things: It created an illusion of big forward movement in implementation It ensured that when the Assembly convenes on Monday it will be able to say with a straight face that the loan waiver process was substantially over; a half-truth but privilege rules don’t measure truth in degrees It passed the buck to the banks so the onus would now be on the banks to quickly disburse the money already released and buy the government some time away from the spotlight That might be a masterstroke to nail the banks which had caused this whole mess in the first place It might also get the government a less rocky ride in the Assembly but the government’s head is still not out of the noose because it is not enough to show movement on paper If a massive loan waiver scheme was indeed near completion it was miraculously noiseless There was radio silence on the ground The farmers were neither feeling it on the ground or in their banks The government is taking care of the first part by keeping the banks open this weekend to answer farmers’ queries That will create a lot of buzz on the ground about disbursal But there is no telling when exactly the farmers will see the money in their banks and the news on that front is still very bad Even the few disbursals that the banks made before 25 November were riddled with all kinds of comic errors In Latur for example farmers had received text messages from banks saying their loans had been waived but were verbally told that the transactions might be reversed (Read this exclusive ground report) Do banks have the capacity to scale up disbursals from a few thousands to more than 7111 lakh in a matter of weeks Highly unlikely While the government is dumping money on the banks like there’s no tomorrow banks are unable to keep pace with disbursals Take SBI for example As of 2 December out of the Rs 8610 crore released to all 63 banks SBI alone took Rs 2371 crore That is more than 25 percent of the funds released to 63 banks But SBI disbursed only Rs 600 crore a dismal disbursal rate of 25 percent SBI’s "green list" was 265778 (one-fifth of the overall "green list" of 1325250) but it had completed disbursal to only 136498 beneficiaries a coverage of just about 50 percent Other banks are managing a 50 percent disbursal rate but since a major chunk of the disbursal will have to happen through SBI the picture is not pretty at all It might only get worse as government off-loads more funds Racing against time to get the farm loan waiver scheme going before the start of the Assembly the Fadnavis government has thrown all caution—and Aadhaar—to the winds It is now at the mercy of the banks to see this through quickly and efficiently But as our investigations have shown speed and efficiency are in severe short supply with the banks The mess could just get messier from here The last word has not been written on Maharashtra’s loan waiver yet Read other stories in our series on the farm loan waiver here and here Yes, It’s time that he goes.
