"This 2 per cent interest subvention will be calculated on the crop loan amount from the date of its disbursement/drawal up to the date of actual repayment of the crop loan by the farmer... subject to a maximum period of one year," RBI said in a notification on Thursday.

Moreover, an additional interest subvention of 3 per cent per annum will also be available to the farmers repaying the loan promptly.

The benefit of interest subvention will be available to small and marginal farmers having Kisan Credit Card for a further period of up to six months post-harvest on the same rate as available to crop loan.
