Ordinance in MP to free adivasis from usurers’ terror

Bhopal, Aug 13 (UNI) The Madhya Pradesh Government intends to bring in an ordinance for liberating tribal families from debts availed from non-licensee moneylenders in notified areas, official sources said.
Information regarding its principal provisions was provided to collectors through video-conferencing during the Janadhikar programme here on Tuesday.
While addressing the bureaucrats, Chief Minister Kamal Nath directed that the campaign against adulterators must not be confined to large districts alone.

“It should be launched intensively in every district. Messing with public health shall not be tolerated. More attention ought to be on administrative reforms. A novel work culture will have to be developed. Negligence and laxity are not in the state’s interest. Therefore, change of thought is imperative. Public feedback on district administration is made available through the Aapki Sarkar Aapke Dwar programme. It must be ensured that officers are available to commoners in districts. Complaints arising at district level should be redressed there itself. Grievances ought to be resolved satisfactorily as problems reappear by negative resolution. In cases of Scheduled Castes and Tribes, the focus must be on registering first information reports. Payment of relief to flood victims should be made at the earliest. Keep check on forced debt recovery from ethnic families,” he averred.
According to the ordinance, by this Independence Day adivasi families will be free from all borrowings from loan sharks and shall also get back their mortgaged property. Punishment for coercive recovery of dues will attract three years’ imprisonment and a fine up to Rs 1 lakh.
A campaign to increase financial literacy in scheduled areas shall be launched and people motivated to take advantage of the facility of overdraft in Jan Dhan accounts. RuPay cards will be issued to tribal households.
