Are Moneylenders Prominent Source of Financial credits to Indian Farmers?
One of the important visions of Government for India is to double the farmer's income by 2022. The issues, challenges and remedial measures have been under debate for long. One of the challenging areas in the line of action is the extent of outstanding loan on farmers which is due to the moneylenders. In this paper authors have attempted to explore the depth of the problem area by carrying out an analysis about the presence of outstanding loan due to moneylenders' i.e. Non-institutional credit. This study has been carried out with the help of unit level data on "Situation Assessment Survey for Agricultural households" collected by National Sample Survey office (NSSO). Special attention is given on flow of credit to farmers with reference to both amount and source and comparisons of loan availed through institutional set-up and moneylenders. Another important feature of the paper is evidence that has been collected about the presence of outstanding loan due to moneylenders and loan comparisons at states level. It is found that at all India level, every fourth loan availed by farmers is through moneylenders. This can be deciphered as deep rooted presence of non-institutional credit in rural India.
