As you all would be aware recently our Finance Minister Smt Nirmala Sitharaman dedicated a lot many benefits to the MSME sector in the country by announcements made through various rounds of Press Conferences.
Now the problem is, that we all know that there are a lot of benefits but do we practically understand what are the benefits and really on ground does this benefits exist or not? The answer to this question is that YES they do exist but the only problem is that we don’t dig deep enough to understand how they exist and what are the methods by which we can practically avail the benefits of registering under MSME Schemes.
If you have not registered under the MSME Udyam registration till date I would strongly recommend you to first register under the MSME as per your eligibility criteria of being a manufacturing or a service concern as per chart below.
Now we will discuss 7 very important points for the benefits of registration and MSME which are practically do able and which we do in day-to-day instances so that it can be a big relief to MSME. So let’s not wait to start the discussion immediately
1. MSME Interest rates have been reduced and Capped to 9.25% by banks and 12% by NBFC’s
Interest rates on collateral-free loans extended by banks and financial institutions have been capped at 9.25 per cent and at 12 per cent for loans extended by non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) to micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) under the recently announced package. Remember, this is much lower than what they are charging earlier 11-13 per cent interest rates and NBFCs charge 16-23 per cent interest rates from MSMes
2. Recently Nirmala sitharaman in her press conference has clearly mandated that all MSME will be given the pending GST refunds on high priority basis within 30 days it will be cleared in their account and further in the future, 60 Days shall be the Period.

3. SIDBI bank which is the small industries Development Bank of India has nearly got 10 plus more schemes for specifically MSME.
Now the important thing here is that these schemes are for MSME’s only in most of the cases you might just get interest rate of around 5 to 10% of loan but all that exist if you are registered as MSME. So you can understand why are being an MSME is an important thing in India right now.
