Pradhan Mantri MUDRA Yojana

The Pradhan Mantri MUDRA Yojana (PMMY) is a scheme launched by the Union Government on April 8, 2015 for providing loans upto ₹ 10 lakh (around US$15,000) to the non-corporate, non-farm small/micro enterprises.

Under PMMY, all banks are required to lend to non-farm sector income generating activities below ₹10 lakh.

These loans are classified as MUDRA loans under PMMY.

PMMY was announced through Union Budget 2015-16, which proposed to create MUDRA bank with a corpus of ₹ 20,000 crore made available from the shortfalls of priority sector lending, to refinance Micro-Finance Institutions through Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana.

Further, budget supported a credit guarantee corpus of ₹3,000 crore for guaranteeing loans being provided to the micro enterprises.

The purpose of PMMY is to provide funding to the non-corporate small business sector.

One of the biggest hurdles to the growth of entrepreneurship in the Non-Corporate Small Business Sector (NCSBS) is lack of financial support to this sector and a vast majority belonging to this sector do not have access to formal sources of finance.
