People have been appearing before the authorities for over a year but no action has been taken against the usurers.

Kirtibhai Jesungbhai Chaudhary of Karadhani village in Dhanera taluka had taken Rs 50,000 in interest from Issam, who was running a finance business. Since he could not pay the capital and interest, the usurers asked Kirtibhai over the phone to provide immediate capital with 30 per cent interest. He was beaten in the shop for not being able to pay that much interest.

People who go to complain from above are being intimidated.
From 2019, small and big traders or lorries in Dhanera were taking rupee at interest to sustain their business as there was no recession. When money is given, interest money is deducted first. If the borrower is late even for one day, he charges 50% penalty. With that comes 70 percent interest. Many young people in interest have fallen prey to these usurpers.

If you don’t take it back, we won’t let you stay in your house and we will kick you out of the house. Mahamadbhai said that we have returned the rupee taken from you with double interest. Rs 18 lakh was paid against Rs 4 lakh.
