In the capital Lucknow, a case of cheating from traders in the name of Pradhan Mantri Swanidhi Yojana has come to light.

These people used to charge 5 to 6 thousand rupees in the name of getting loan under PM Swanidhi Yojana. Police have seized fake form and laptop attached to the scheme from them.
The tracks took advantage of the compulsion of the shopkeepers
Inspector Aminabad Alok Rai said that due to the closure of the market due to the Corona curfew, the track shops are also not coming up. So many traders are upset. These fraudsters are taking advantage of this. It was reported from a businessman that some people are submitting the form in the name of getting loan to the track traders and are taking bribe in lieu of it. When the investigation was done, the whole pole was opened. Lalit Kumar of Hussainganj, Anil Bajp; h of Harinagar Duganwa and Shahbaz Ali of Kalyanpur were arrested in this case.
Used to fill the form on the spot
According to the thug Lalit, the track shopkeepers are not suspicious, so they used to get the form filled in front of the track shopkeeper on the laptop. Also, they would be asked to deposit the loan amount in the account within ten days.
