Pradhan Mantri MUDRA Yojana (PMMY)

Pradhan Mantri MUDRA Yojana (PMMY) is a scheme launched by the Hon’ble Prime Minister on April 8, 2015 for providing loans upto 10 lakh to the non-corporate, non-farm small/micro enterprises. These loans are classified as MUDRA loans under PMMY. These loans are given by Commercial Banks, RRBs, Small Finance Banks, Cooperative Banks, MFIs and NBFCs. The borrower can approach any of the lending institutions mentioned above or can apply online through this portal. Under the aegis of PMMY, MUDRA has created three products namely 'Shishu', 'Kishore' and 'Tarun' to signify the stage of growth / development and funding needs of the beneficiary micro unit / entrepreneur and also provide a reference point for the next phase of graduation / growth.

MUDRA

One of the biggest bottleneck for SMEs in India is the lack of financial support from the formal banking or financial sector. The lack of formal financing hampers growth of small businesses and makes them ineffective at competing with larger players. To remove this bottle neck and provide finance to micro units or Entrepreneurs, MUDRA Bank has been setup as a subsidiary of SIDBI.
 
MUDRA would be responsible for refinancing all financiers or financial institutions engaged in financing of Small Businesses, Societies, Trusts Section 8 Companies, Co-operative Societies, Small Banks, Scheduled Commercial Banks and Rural Banks which are in the business of lending to micro or small businesses engaged in manufacturing, trading and services activities.
 
Loan under MUDRA
Loan is provided currently under three schemes in Pradhan Mantri MUDRA Yojana. The three schemes are as following:
  1. Shishu: Loan of upto Rs.50,000/=
  2. Kishor: Loans of above Rs.50,000 to Rs.5 lakhs.
  3. Tarun: Loans of above Rs.5 lakhs to Rs.10 lakhs.

The terms and conditions of the lendor would have to be followed for availing of loans under MUDRA. The lending rates are as per the RBI guidelines issued in this regard from time to time.
