Kisan Credit Card Fraud

Although KCC was a noble idea to help needy farmers, it has become a tool that has been misused by many. A disturbing trend has been observed that has been causing severe concern to banks and regulators alike where funds borrowed under KCC schemes are often being diverted for non-agriculture activities. These include estate investment, other business activities, purchase of expensive cars and jewellery, higher education of children in foreign countries, indigenous lending, etc.

Revolving cash facility, which entails unlimited withdrawals and repayments as long as it is within the prescribed limits, makes KCC vulnerable to money laundering. KCC could also be potentially used for “nesting” due to the lack of proper documentation requirements. A customer can facilitate payments or deposits on behalf of someone else, which could easily be crime proceeds.
