Waive off power fee to BPL, AYY categories: Fayaz Mir

Member Rajya Sabha, Fayaz Ahmad Mir on Wednesday urged central and state governments to waive off electricity fee to BPL and AAY categories.

He said fruit growers and farmers across J&K suffered losses post August 2019 and there interest on Kisan Credit Cards should also be waved off on humanitarian grounds.

Mir said since the uncertainty prevailed post August every walk of life in J&K suffered immensely. “Central and state governments should come to rescue of farmers and fruit growers who suffered huge losses since August 2019. Situation demands they should be treated on humanitarian grounds and their loans should be waived off,” Mir said.
