Official Announcement of 5% Cash Subsidy Transfer on Bank Loans
National Scheduled Castes Finance and Development Corporation Chairman and Managing Director K. Narayan had announced PM Visvas Scheme last year at a webinar hosted by business chamber Assocham. In the webinar, he said “It would help provide immediate cash benefit to the beneficiary and I would urge our bankers to come forward and extend support to this scheme which would be floated within a period of the next 15-20 days or in a month’s time”.
Dr. Ramdas Athawale said “While there are various government schemes, we must encourage youth belonging to marginalised community to come forward and become a part of the cooperative sector… our ministry also provides skill development training as such and they should take advantage of the same”. The official announcement date for Vanchit Ikai Samooh aur Vargo Ke Liye Arthik Sahayata Yojana was made on 28 August 2020.
Banks Role in Implementing PM Vishwas Scheme
The central govt. is urging members of underprivileged communities to come forward and takes advantage of those government schemes specifically designed to promote their economic development. The banks will play a lead role in helping the underprivileged by providing loans to the aspiring entrepreneurs instead of discouraging them. With the implementation of PM Visvas Scheme, people from deprived sections would be empowered.
The government must also stand behind and support people from disadvantaged groups by providing end-to-end hand holding with the help of NGOs. There is an urgent need to set up a monitoring cell under the PMO to keep track of all the various schemes aimed at supporting the underprivileged and promoting their development. Initiatives like Mission Swavalamban aiming to maximise the outreach and awareness of business opportunities and loan facility access to the aspiring SC/ST entrepreneurs across India should be encouraged.
