The nodal officer, state implementing agency (SIA), animal husbandary and dairy development, Government of Arunachal Pradesh has conducted all procedure and found correct and feasible as per NLM guidelines but the lending banks in state which include Indian Bank, ICICI Bank, Bank of India, Bank of Baroda, Punjab National bank, Canara Bank, Bank of Maharashtra, HDFC Bank, APRB, APCAB, Central bank of India are not taking initiatives despite direction given from the ministry to disburse the amount to the project.

We write a representation to the Commissioner (Animal husbandry, veterinary and Dairy development) in March 2023 and the commissioner has also written to the Regional Manager state bank of India (SBI) Itanagar for sanction, Later the commissioner has written to the Joint Secretary (NLM) for difficulties in implementation of EDP scheme under NLM. But inspite of all above the banks are making excuse like of market not viable, customers has not approach the banks, project not viable, no insurance coverage of the asset etc. it is nothing but harassing the innocent beneficiaries.
