Banks fear that increased lending to agriculture may result in high non-performing assets and affect their performance.

Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee will review the annual performance of public sector banks in different sectors including flow of agriculture credit and micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) credit among others in a meeting with their heads in New Delhi on Friday.

Finance Ministry in a statement said, "The Finance Minister will do the annual review of public sector banks' performance in different sectors including flow of agriculture credit, micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) credit, disbursement of housing loans and education loans among others."

The government has set a target to provide Rs.4,75,000 crore credit to agriculture sector in the current fiscal, as against Rs.4,46,778.98 crore in the previous year.

In fiscal 2010-11, the total credit to the sector exceeded the target by 19 percent. Total agriculture credit in 2010-11 was Rs.4,46,778.98 crore against the budget target of Rs.3,75,000 crore.
