Certain Anti- dumping and CVD on stainless steel and coated steel flat products, bars of alloy steel and high-speed steel are being revoked in larger public interest considering prevailing high prices of metals.
The FM also announced extension of Emergency Credit Line Guarantee Scheme (ECLGS) up to March 2023 and its guarantee cover will be expanded by Rs 50,000 cr to total cover of Rs 5 lakh cr, with the additional amount being earmarked exclusively for the hospitality and related enterprises.

“The hospitality and related services, especially those by micro and small enterprises, are yet to regain their pre-pandemic level of business,” FM said.
Credit Guarantee Trust for Micro and Small Enterprises (CGTMSE) scheme will be revamped with required infusion of funds. This will facilitate additional credit of Rs 2 lakh cr for Micro and Small Enterprises and expand employment opportunities, the FM further said.

These services will relate to credit facilitation, skilling, and recruitment with an aim to further formalise the economy and enhance entrepreneurial opportunities for all.
