Mudra loan for sc, st and obc
“If you give a fish to a man, he will eat it for a day, but, if you teach him to fish, he will never get hungry”. The Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana is also following the same process. It is not only giving upliftment to the poor sector but also providing expert suggestions so that they should come across minimum risk and loss. In the last budget list, Mr. Arun Jaitley, the Finance Minister of India announced to propose a Micro Units Development Agency, which is also known as the MUDRA Bank. In the month of April, Prime Minister Narendra Modi finally decided to launch the program and loans are being offered to those who are in great need who cannot avail the basic banking facilities.
There is a new scheme Stand Up India launched by PM Modi for providing Loan for SC ST and Women.
Since then, there are several banks who are offering loans under the PMMY schemes for setting up small and micro business. It is estimated that Rs. 1.22 lakh crore will be disbursed under the scheme at the end of the year.
How to avail loans under the Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana Scheme | Stand Up India Scheme
The Mudra bank is a whole new concept as of now. So, it is not a banker as a whole. But, in the future, it will definitely be a good banking service providing loans to the backward and poor sectors of our nation. Currently, the main service that is being offered is the re-financial services.
Now, the question arises, how to avail the loan?
- The borrower will simply approach to his nearest lending institution in his region. It may be a scheduled commercial bank for both public and private, regional rural bank, scheduled urban co-operative bank or a micro financial institution.
- There he will find several schemes.
- In case if he finds difficulties in choosing those schemes, there are certain agents who will guide them in choosing what scheme will best fit for their business.
- Now he has to apply for the loan and soon he will get whatever he has applied.
It may be a general question that why these banks will lend loans to these small business institutions, where there are chances of getting no returns? Well, the government will take the responsibility along with the borrower. Both of them will share a 50-50 liability towards the loan that the borrower has taken. The government will provide a subsidy to the borrower so that he can get his interests cleared over a period of time.
