Process of applying for a Rs 1 Crore MSME Loan
Recently Hon’ble Prime Minister revealed 12 initiatives for the growth of the micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) sector. This included a digital platform for MSMEs to avail loans upto 1 crore in an hour or less. This initiative is expected to shorten the complicated loan approval process and aims at promoting digitisation of procedures.
The loan amount permissible is between Rs 10 lakh and Rs 1 crore. The rate of interest is 8% and above. Following initial approval, the loan amount will be given in 7-8 working days. There is no payment to be made for registration. However, a charge of Rs 1000 (taxes not included) will be levied as a convenience charge for using the portal. An added benefit for small industries is that collateral is not compulsory under the CGTMSE Scheme.
