Dear Sir,

 

Credit flow to Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Sector

 

Please refer to Paragraph No.2 of our circular RPCD.PLFNS.BC.No.31/ 06.02.31/ 2005-06 dated August 19, 2005 wherein the definition of Small and Medium Enterprise had been indicated as reproduced below:

"At present, a small scale industrial unit is an undertaking in which investment in plant and machinery, does not exceed Rs.1crore, except in respect of certain specified items under hosiery, hand tools, drugs and pharmaceuticals, stationery items and sports goods, where this investment limit has been enhanced to Rs.5 crore. A comprehensive legislation which would enable the paradigm shift from small scale industry to small and medium enterprises is under consideration of Parliament. Pending enactment of the above legislation, current SSI/ tiny industries definition may continue. Units with investment in plant and machinery in excess of SSI limit and up to Rs. 10 crore may be treated as Medium Enterprises (ME)."

2. The Government of India has since enacted the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development (MSMED) Act, 2006 on June 16, 2006 which was notified on October 2, 2006. Consistent with the notification of the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development (MSMED) Act 2006, the definition of micro, small and medium enterprises engaged in manufacturing or production and providing or rendering of services is being modified and is required to be implemented by the banks alongwith other policy measures with immediate effect.

PLNFS. BC. No. 2/ 06.02.31/ 2006-07 dated July 1, 2006). The Boards of banks may review the existing guidelines/instructions and formulate a comprehensive and liberal policy in respect of loans to micro, small and medium (MSME) sector and adopt the same at the earliest.
