CHENNAI: The Madras high court on Tuesday asked the Tamil Nadu government to waive farm loans obtained by all farmers, instead of limiting the benefit only to those owning less than five acres of land.
The court also restrained officials from initiating any penal or recovery proceedings against farmers who had defaulted on repayment of crop loans.
