The establishment of MUDRA bank was announced by Hon'ble Finance Minister Shri Arun Jaitley during the Union Budget session of FY 2015-16. It was formed with the main goal of empowering small businesses and entrepreneurs. Accordingly, it was launched by the Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on 8th April 2015. There are several provisions under the scheme to assist the MSME sector, that will fully meet customer needs and will effectively cover certain locations that ordinary banks are unable to cover.
MUDRA loans that are applied online are called e-MUDRA Loans. E-MUDRA loans can be applied from a number of commercial and public sector banks, Small Finance Banks, NBFCs and MFIs. They can also apply online through the Udyami Mitra Portal. The loan scheme was introduced with the objective of aiding financial institutions to extend loans to the non-corporate non-farm sector income generating activities of micro and small entities (subject to those enterprises with credit needs below Rs.10 lakhs).
Large scale industries have never had any difficulty in securing credit for their enterprises, because of the perception that they offer the highest employment opportunities to the general population. It is shocking though, to find out that large industries employ only 1.25 crore people countrywide. It is the small scale industries, which falls under the unorganized sector, that employs around 12 crore people in this country. Despite this fact, they do not have adequate credit facilities. It is to combat this situation that the Prime Minister envisaged the Micro Units Development & Refinance Agency Ltd (MUDRA) scheme.
This scheme is primarily aimed at MSME units across the country. It was established with the sole purpose of funding and saving small entrepreneurs from abuse by money lenders and helping 1.5 crore new entrepreneurs in developing small businesses. The MUDRA scheme offers loans that do not need collateral. Under this arrangement there is no fixed rate of interest on the loans availed. Interest is charged at the base rate plus 1–7%. This can also be higher, depending on the risk involved and the profile of the customer.
The MUDRA scheme has been a boon to the MSME sector by giving collateral free financing to these budding enterprises.
The MUDRA Yojana scheme offers the following advantages over other MSME financing schemes in the market:
The MUDRA Yojana has a few different schemes under different categories.
In order to apply for the e-MUDRA scheme, your business should be either one of the following:
The MUDRA loan can be availed by MSME Entrepreneurs from the following sectors
The MUDRA scheme offers a very simple way of applying to the finance scheme. To make it easier, the scheme is streamlined into 3 categories:
Shishu: Start-ups seeking a loan up to an amount of Rs. 50,000 can apply for a loan under this classification. The rate of interest would be 10–12%.
Kishor: Unestablished business units seeking a loan amount of Rs. 50,000 up to Rs.5 lakhs can apply for a loan in this category and will have to bear an interest rate of 14–17%.
Tarun: Established businesses looking for expansion of their existing unit can apply for a loan under this category with funding of up to INR 10lacs. The interest rate ranges above 16%.
The Government has been encouraging digital banking across the country. It has introduced a number of measures to ensure that most banking facilities are available on the digital platform. In order to provide a transparent application process for the MUDRA loan and to enable entrepreneurs to access these loans from their place of business, e-MUDRA was introduced.
