Earlier, country's largest lender State Bank of India had waived off outstanding loans of 23 CRPF soldiers martyred in the attack. "23 CRPF soldiers had availed of loans from the bank and the bank has decided to waive off all the outstanding loans with immediate effect," the bank said in a statement.
All these soldiers were customers under defence salary package where it provides insurance of Rs 30 lakh to each of the defence personnel.
"It is extremely distressing and disturbing to witness the loss of lives of the soldiers who always stand for safety of our country. These initiatives by the bank is a small gesture towards the families who have faced irreparable loss," the bank's chairman Rajnish Kumar said.
