Emergency Credit Line Guarantee Scheme
Under this scheme, the government has decided to provide additional working capital finance to the MSME sector of the country. So, 20% of the total outstanding credit of any enterprise is to be given as term loan at a concessional rate of interest, under this scheme. This has been made available to the units with up to Rs 25 crores outstanding and a maximum turnover of Rs 100 crores. The only criterion is that their credit accounts should be standard as on February 29 2020.
These units will not have to provide any collateral or guarantee but the amount will be guaranteed by the government. The aim is to arrange for Rs 3 lakh crores as liquidity support to 45 lakh MSME units operating in the country.
