c. Withdrawal through ATM / Debit cards
d. Operations through Business Correspondents and ultra thin branches
e. Operation through PoS available in Sugar Mills/ Contract farming companies, etc., especially for tie-up advances

Note: (e), (f) & (g) to be introduced as early as possible so as to reduce transaction costs of both the bank as well as the farmer.

Para 10
Repayment Period

10.1 Each withdrawal under the short term sub-limit as estimated under (a) to (e) of para 3 above, be allowed to be liquidated in 12 months without the need to bring the debit balance in the account to zero at any point of time. No withdrawal in the account should remain outstanding for more than 12 months.

10.1 The repayment period may be fixed by banks as per the anticipated harvesting and marketing period for the crops for which a loan has been granted.

Para 13
Other Features

13.ii The KCC holder should have the option to take benefit of Crop Insurance, Assets Insurance, Personal Accident Insurance Scheme (PAIS) and Health Insurance (wherever product is available) and have premium paid through his KCC account. Necessary premium will have to be paid on the basis of agreed ratio between bank and farmer to the insurance companies from KCC accounts. Farmer beneficiaries should be made aware of the insurance cover available and their consent is to be obtained, at the application stage itself.

13.ii Besides the mandatory crop insurance, the KCC holder should have the option to take benefit of Assets Insurance, Personal Accident Insurance Scheme (PAIS), and Health Insurance (wherever product is available) and have premium paid through his KCC account. Necessary premium will have to be paid on the basis of agreed ratio between bank and farmer to the ins companies from KCC accounts. Farmer beneficiaries should be made aware of the insurance cover available and their consent (except in case of crop insurance, it being mandatory) is to be obtained, at the application stage itself.

Para 14
Classification of Account as NPA

14.1 With a view to simplifying asset-classification, the Committee has recommended that an account could be treated as standard, when the balance outstanding is less than or equal to drawing limit [short term (crop) loan] at any point of time during the preceding one year. In other words, it is suggested that the short term loan (with major component of crop loan) sanctioned on the KCC can be given the same treatment as a cash credit account for the purpose of applying prudential norms and should not be treated as out of order if the balance outstanding is less than or equal to the drawing limit and each drawl is repaid within a period of 12 months. Term loan under KCC has fixed repayment schedule and is to be governed by extant prudential norms.

14.1 The extant prudential norms for income recognition, asset-classification and provisioning will continue to apply for loans granted under revised KCC Scheme.
