Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on 9th May 2020 said that banks have provided the three-month loan moratorium to around 3 crore farmers in the country for loans totalling Rs 4.22 lakh crore.

In a tweet, Finance Minister said eligible borrowers were also given emergency credit lines and their working capital limits were increased by the public sector banks (PSBs). Sitharaman said, “Since March 2020, around 9.13 crore farmers have been given Rs 18,253 crore under PM-KISAN scheme during the #lockdown. About 3 crore farmers with agri loans totaling Rs 4,22,113 crore availed the benefit of the three-month loan moratorium”.
