Govt to help MSMEs access bank loans at cheaper rates: Kalraj Mishra

Mishra said that MSMEs across the country needed capital at relaxed rates of interest to run their enterprises and cater to the needs of their big brothers as well as contributes substantially to India\\\'s manufacturing and external engagements.

The Union Ministry of MSME is lobbying hard with the public sector banking enterprises to extend loan facilities to MSMEs at base rate so that this segment is able to access vast capital from the financial and banking institutions at much cheaper rates and roll out quality products and run their enterprises effectively, Kalraj Mishra, Union Minister for MSME said while inaugurating the 2nd Innovation Summit-2014 under the aegis of PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry today.
 
 
"To ensure this, I am meeting the senior functionaries of banking and financial institutions at Lucknow on Thursday (tomorrow) so that an earlier decision is taken on this front with their concurrence which will be duly endorsed subsequently by the Reserve Bank of India, Finance Minsitry and the Prime Minister Office", said Mishra.
 
 
Mishra said that micro, small and medium enterprises across the country needed capital at relaxed rates of interest to run their enterprises and cater to the needs of their big brothers as well as contributes substantially to India's manufacturing and external engagements.
 
 
"A couple of weeks ago, after my meeting with the representatives of host of micro and small industry associations in New Delhi following intense and protracted discussions with them, it was consented that the Ministry of MSME would work hard to ensure that base rate interest regime would be facilitated for the small and tiny enterprises. Subsequently, this concern of theirs was forwarded to the Prime Minister Office by the MSME Ministry and as a follow up action, I would be having conclusive parleys with the representatives of the banking and financial institutions so that with due deliberations the base rate interest regime is prevailed for this segment of industry.  There has to be an intense focus on rural entrepreneurs and we will try to simplify business procedures for their growth," Mishra explained.
 
 
"My Ministry has been working hard to make sure that the new government succeeds in setting up of Credit Guarantee Trust Funds to extend liberal packages to MSME as a whole and inputs have already been incorporated in the new draft MSME Policy which is at the advanced stage of finalization. The government proposes to roll out the new policy in the next 30 days," said Mishra.
 
 
As per stipulation of the new policy, the general procedures as well as procurement procedures would be vastly simplified and all clearances for setting up of micro and small businesses would be accorded online within a fixed period of 15 days, assured the minister.  
 
 
Sharad Jaipuria, President and Vice President, PHD Chamber and Mahesh Gupta complimented the government for being proactive towards the industry by formulating policies that would accrue higher growth to India. Both Jaipuria and Gupta thanked the MSME Minister for making sure that MSME segment which is an important stakeholder in the space of PHD Chamber for making sure that the new government would treat it with base rate interest facilities.  The need of the hour is to build the innovative capacities of MSMEs to unleash their entrepreneurial spirit.
