State Bank of India shocked Jagan Mohan Reddy govt in granting a loan of Rs. 3000 crore due to the current state of AP's financial status. Despite the state government's assurance, State Bank is not ready to lend. SBI apprehended that how the loan could be repaid by the govt.

AP Power Finance Corporation has recently applied to State Bank for a loan of Rs 3,000 crore. But as the debt burden on the state government continues to rise, the SBI has written a two-page letter to the managing director of APPFCL, expressing doubts over the government's guarantee.

The state government has a total of Rs 2.52 lakh crore for the financial year 2018-19. In its letter, State Bank referred to the Brickwork Report that the debt burden will reach Rs 3 lakh crore by 2020.
