The directions were issued after a farmer, Satish of Ajhai village, did not get his compensation amount due to some "technical errors".
"Satish could not get payment for his compensation cheque on April 13 due to a technical error between two banks. Though Rs 3 crore were deposited in SBI account on that day, however,
it did not transfer the amount to Bank Of India, Chhatta, the same day," District Magistrate Rajesh Kumar said.

The district magistrate said a meeting of bank managers have been called on Wednesday and added, "Meanwhile, the banks have been instructed that the farmers should not be denied payment for their cheques in any case as there is no dearth of funds."
Kumar said so far sixty thousand cheques have been distributed and every payment has been ensured. For speedy payment four banks have been selected in Chhatta Tahsi, he added.
