A network of usurers spread in the city under the guise of daily collection
Daily collection business is going on in 10 to 15 places in the city. Many moneylenders have started this new work in which their diaries are made after signing a blank check and blank stamp with people without any license. If someone wants to borrow two thousand rupees, then 200 rupees are already deducted according to two days’ 100 rupees per day. The needy only gets 1800 rupees. The next day he has to pay an installment of 100 rupees. If missed one day, then a penalty of 60 rupees is directly charged. If delayed for two days, 60’s straight becomes 150 rupees.
