`Implement coffee package as it is’

Kodagu Growers Federation and Jaya Karnataka have urged the banks to implement Rs 241.33 crore coffee package announced by the Union government as it is, without any change. 

 Addressing a press meet, Federation office-bearer Madhu Bopanna and Jaya Karnataka district President Robin Kuttappa said the Union government had announced coffee package when the coffee growers were in distress owing to the failure of monsoon and steep fall in the prices of coffee. However, the banks have failed to implement the package effectively.

Citing silly reasons, some banks have been coming in the way of implementing coffee package. Few banks are also stating that they are yet to get order on coffee package. Hence, the banks are not seriously thinking of implementing coffee package, they alleged.

“Few bank officials are engaged in cheating the growers by stating that loan waiver facility will be given to those growers who have repaid the loan fully. If the banks forcibly recover loan borrowed by the growers, then we will stage protest in front of such banks,” they warned.

Apex banks and DCC banks should take the responsibility to bear the amount of loan waiver of the co operative banks. If the banks fail to implement coffee package in Madikeri taluk within a week, then we will stage protest in front of banks, they said.
