The Bank will sanction 90% of the project cost in case of General Category of beneficiary/institution and 95% in case of special category of the beneficiary/institution, and disburse full amount suitably for setting up ofthe project.
Bank will finance Capital Expenditure in the form of Term Loan and Working Capital in the form of cash credit. Project can also be financed by the Bank in the form of Composite Loan consisting of Capital Expenditure and Working Capital. The amount of Bank Credit will be ranging between 60-75% of the total project cost after deducting 15-35% of margin money (subsidy) and owner’s contribution of 10% from beneficiaries belonging to general category and 5% from beneficiaries belonging to special categories.
This scheme will thus require enhanced allocations and sanction of loans from participating banks. This is expected to be achieved as Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has already issued guidelines to the Public Sector Banks to ensure 20 % year to year growth in credit to MSME Sector. SIDBI is also strengthening its credit operations to micro enterprises so as to cover 50 lakh additional beneficiaries over five years beginning 2006-07, and is recognized as a participating financial institution under PMEGP besides other scheduled/ Commercial Banks.
Though Banks will claim Margin Money (subsidy) on the basis of projections of Capital Expenditure in the project report and sanction thereof, Margin Money (subsidy) on the actual availment of Capital Expenditure only will be retained and excess, if any, will be refunded to KVIC, immediately after the project is ready for commencement of production.
8.4 Working Capital component should be utilized in such a way that at one point of stage it touches 100% limit of Cash Credit within three years of lock in period of Margin Money and not less than 75% utilization of the sanctioned limit. If it does not touch aforesaid limit, proportionate amount of the Margin Money (subsidy) is to be recovered by the Bank/Financial Institution and refunded to the KVIC at the end of the third year.
Rate of interest and repayment schedule Normal rate of interest shall be charged. Repayment schedule may range between 3 to 7 years after an initial moratorium as may be prescribed by the concerned bank/financial institution. It has been observed that banks have been routinely insisting on credit guarantee coverage irrespective of the merits of the proposal. This approach needs to be discouraged.
RBI will issue necessary guidelines to the Banks to accord priority in sanctioning projects under PMEGP. RBI will also issue suitable guidelines as to which RRBs and other banks will be excluded from implementing the Scheme.
