As per news report of NDTV, the interest waiver will apply for loans taken by MSMEs (Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises), for educational, housing, consumer goods and auto loans and for credit card dues. "Under pandemic conditions, the only solution is for the government to bear the burden of waiving of interest," the government has said in an affidavit submitted on Friday, adding that it will seek parliament's permission for grants to enable the move. For the categories specified by the government, the waiver on interest will be irrespective of whether the borrower has availed of the moratorium.
