To help small businesses during the COVID-19 lockdown, the Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced collateral-free loans up to Rs 3 lakh crore backed by government guarantee on May 13th, 2020. The 100 per cent collateral-free MSME loan is being called the Emergency Credit Line Guarantee Scheme (ECLGS), which is being provided by the National Credit Guarantee Trustee Company (NCGTC) to banks, NBFCs and Financial Institutions (FIs).
According to this scheme, every eligible MSME or business enterprise, gets a pre-approved sanction limit of up to 20 per cent of loan outstanding as on 29th February, 2020. This is in the form of additional working capital term loan facility (in case of banks and Financial Institutions), and additional term loan facility (in case of NBFCs).
