FICCI welcomes loan-restructuring window for MSMEs

FICCI welcomes loan-restructuring window for MSMEs

New Delhi, Jan 2 (UNI) FICCI on Wednesday welcomed RBI’s move to provide a loan-restructuring window for MSMEs with loans up to Rs 25 crore.

“This will provide a much-needed boost to the small and medium enterprises that had been reeling under financial pressures on account of reasons beyond their control,” FICCI president Sandip Somany said.

MSMEs are the backbone of the Indian industry, but generally face greater vulnerability on account of the payment mechanisms which came under greater stress in recent times. The tight liquidity situation in the financial markets only exacerbated the problems faced by the MSMEs and a measure like the one announced by RBI was clearly needed to support these units.

“The relief comes at the right juncture and will provide the much-needed momentum to push the growth levers as MSMEs make a significant contribution to domestic output, exports as well as job creation,” said Mr Somany, adding that, “The RBI scheme should provide an incentive to the lenders to look at restructuring of the loans extended to MSMEs in a more pragmatic manner and we hope that it will also expedite decision making in this regard.”

RBI’s relief window for MSMEs together with other measures announced by the government for easier and affordable access to credit such as interest subsidy on loans should help in reviving growth of MSMEs and provide an added impetus to push the overall growth of the economy upwards of 8 per cent.
