The Indian economy is dominated by micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) they employ millions of people, making them the second-largest employer in India.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government developed a unique strategy – the Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhjan, which helps the Indian economy recover from the inadvertent crisis of economic slowdown. It is an attempt to make India autonomous and autonomous, independent in every respect, to achieve a minimum degree of dependency on other nations.
ATMANIRBHAR BHARAT ABHIYAN – RELIEF PACKAGE FOR MSMEs
The proposed relief plan aims to give MSMEs in India a significant boost. Indeed, India itself has strong roots in strengthening Indian SMEs, making them truly autonomous. Reason: MSMEs are nearest to the public and are the source of the pyramid that hires locally, produces locally, and sells locally and at the lowest price. Thus, MSMEs are the first objective that Abhiyan seems to have aimed at achieving the greater objective of making India autonomous.
Modi Government Schemes help MSMEs
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman recently announced several improvements in the classification of Micro Small and medium enterprises. In view of the fact that MSMEs are part of Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan, she has announced a number of steps for the MSMEs in difficulty and distress. Collateral-free loans are among the most important initiatives. Under the scheme, the MSMEs were assigned a total of Rs3 lakh crore for these loans. These loans will be fully supported by the government and MSMEs will have the opportunity of paying the duties in the next 45 days.
Redefinition of MSMEs
The Minister also redefined the MSMEs and the new concept is seen as a big opportunity for the MSME sector to expand and to develop as one of the Indian economy’s key sectors.
New Benefits for MSMEs under Atmanirbhar Bharat Scheme
Emergency Credit Line is proposed under the scheme. It will seek to target companies and MSMEs that receive up to 20 percent of the total outstanding loan from banks and non-banking financing (NBFCs). The eligibility requirements for such a loan are that the value provided for by this system would be reaped by those who have Rs25 crore outstanding and Rs100 crore turnover annually.
Best Part of the Loan Scheme for MSMEs
MSMEs would have a term of four or 48 months and therefore a moratorium on their reimbursement of the principal sum for a 12-month period is the best aspect of these loan schemes. In addition, the interest is also restricted. The full credit guarantee on principal and interest will be issued by the government.
Allocation of Funds for the Loan Scheme for MSMEs
The scheme assigns Rs20,000 to MSMEs which are either non-profit assets or stressed in the form of subordinated debt. It also allocates Rs50k crore equity infusion by funding. In addition, any multinational corporation has not received government tenders of up to Rs200 crore. This will allow the local actors to take a further distance and try to obtain tenders from the government.
Even A Little Help, Helps MSMEs To Go the Extra Mile
Small companies are running on low budgets and are almost always cash-strapped. MSMEs are also without collateral or large reserves as low-budget companies to attract banks to lend them. Daily and timely credit infusions tend to be essential for any company to expand.
Abhiyan – A Boon to The MSMEs
There is a two-way solution to the new scheme. On the other hand, it also allows MSMEs in the form of non-collateral loans to realize the dream of becoming great players. The aim is to inspire MSMEs, however, to step up thinking and think high. In addition, MSMEs and indigenous businesses will have ample opportunity to purchase government tenders up to Rs200 crore, mostly obtained by major global players earlier.
MSMEs honored to help India become Atmanirbhar
Small businesses are working on a very small budget, targeting nothing and working even though the profit margin is reduced. This distinguishes them from large companies that aim largely at big profits and profit alone. On the other hand, it is a privilege for MSMEs to help make Bharat autonomous to India.
