Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh on Monday ruled out denied any possibility of a loan waiver for farmers, saying the NDA government's focus lay in their empowerment.Instead of a waiver, it instead intended to invest in various schemes and initiatives to boost their income, he said."Our focus is on empowerment of farmers. We want agricultural production to increase and maintenance to go down. We are investing in schemes that are aimed at increasing farmers' income," he said while briefing media about achievements of his ministry in last three years.Singh said that loan waivers cannot solve farmers' problems, so the government's focus was on bringing down input cost of farming and providing facilities to farmers.The demand for loan waiver came from all quarters after Uttar Pradesh government waived off loans of up to Rs 1 lakh of small and marginal farmers in the state, which was one of the promises in the BJP's manifesto before the assembly elections.Reacting to a question about this, he said: "It was Uttar Pradesh government's decision to waive off loans in the state. Our (Centre) priority is to save farmers from clutches of sahukars (private-money lenders). We seek transparency in it. 

We have increased credit (for short-term loans) from Rs 8.5 lakh crore to Rs 10 lakh crore."Hit by two consecutive droughts, distressed farmers from Tamil Nadu in March launched 40-day long agitation in the national capital demanding loan waiver.The Madras High Court had then asked the Tamil Nadu government to waive agricultural loans of farmers, irrespective of their land holding.Ahead of 2009 Lok Sabha elections, the Congress-led UPA government had, in the 2008 budget, announced Rs 60,000 crore package to provide relief to the indebted farming community by waiving off loans of small and marginal farmers.Major opposition parties including Congress has been seeking loan waivers for relief to farmers across the country.Similar demands have come from states of Maharashtra and Punjab. Last week, around 150 farmers from Maharashtra's Vidarbha region - an epicentre of farmers suicide - held a one day hunger strike to remind Prime Minister Narendra Modi of promises he made before 2014 Lok Sabha elections, but have remained unfulfilled.In the same protest event, Congress leaders Jyotiraditya Scindia and Oscar Ferandes assured the farmers that their issues would be raised in the upcoming Parliamentary session.In March this year, State Bank of India Chairman Arundhati Bhattacharya had created an uproar after she said loan waivers may disrupt credit discipline among borrowers.
