The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has issued a warning regarding unauthorized “loan waiver” campaigns that are currently circulating. These campaigns involve misleading advertisements that tempt borrowers with promises of having their loans waived. Unfortunately, many of these entities are not authorized to make such claims.

These misleading entities are falsely asserting that individuals are not required to repay their debts to financial institutions. In reality, this misinformation has serious consequences, as it undermines the stability of financial institutions and puts depositor interests at risk.

To make matters worse, these unauthorized entities are charging borrowers a service or legal fee in exchange for issuing so-called ‘debt waiver certificates.’ It’s crucial for the public to be aware that these certificates hold no authority and are not legitimate documents. Individuals falling prey to these schemes not only risk financial loss due to the fees charged but also contribute to the destabilization of the financial sector.

In light of these developments, the RBI urges the public to exercise caution and verify the authenticity of any such claims or advertisements offering loan waivers. It is essential to deal only with authorized and reputable financial entities to ensure the security of personal finances and the overall stability of the financial system.
