(a): Banks are implementing various schemes for promotion of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) which inter alia include Pradhan Mantri MUDRA Yojana (PMMY), Weavers'' Credit Card Scheme (WCC), Collateral free loans under Credit Guarantee Trust for Micro and Small Enterprises (CGTMSE), Prime Minister''s Employment Generation Programme, National Urban Livelihood Mission (NULM). In addition, State Governments and Banks have their own schemes for working capital & term loans.

(b): Targets are fixed for the promotion of MSME as a whole, bank-wise & state-wise by the State Level Bankers’ Committee (SLBC). However, Government of India and Reserve Bank of India have, inter-alia, fixed the following targets to make bank credit more accessible to MSMEs:

Scheduled Commercial Banks (SCBs) have been advised to
Achieve a 20 per cent year-on-year growth in credit to Micro and Small Enterprises (MSE).
Allocate 60% of the MSE advances to the Micro Enterprises; and
Achieve a 10% annual growth in number of Micro Enterprise accounts.

According to Priority Sector Lending (PSL) guidelines revised in April 2015, a target of 7.5 percent of Adjusted Net Bank Credit (ANBC) or Credit Equivalent Amount of Off-Balance Sheet Exposure, whichever is higher, has been prescribed for SCBs for lending to Micro Enterprises. This target is to be achieved in a phased manner i.e. 7 percent by March 2016 and 7.5 percent by March 2017. 

(c): (i) The status of proposal received, sanctioned/disbursed and rejected under Small & Micro categories in Uttar Pradesh during the last two years as compiled by SLBC UP are as under:

Financial Year No. of Applications received No. of Applications Disbursed Under Process No. of Applications Rejected

(iii) Lack of basic infrastructure and absence of marketing facilities in the area do not permit the success of the projects.
