    Collateral Free Loans

    What are Collateral Free Loans

    Collateral free loans, in general, imply any loan that is disbursed without a supporting collateral or security to limit the lender’s exposure to risk. A special type of collateral free loan scheme is available in India under the Credit Guarantee Fund Trust Scheme for Micro & Small Enterprises (CGTMSE). Under this scheme, the micro and small enterprises (MSEs) are eligible for collateral free loans up to Rs.1. crore in value.

    The CGTMSE scheme had been introduced as a propellant to the lagging MSE industry in India. The biggest problem faced by these enterprises has been a lack of funding, resulting in limited opportunities for growth, working capital needs or scaling. Most MSEs typically start out with a service or product that may not earn revenue in the near future. To ensure that these enterprises stay above water and can manage to sustain the business through cheap financing, the govt. had released the CGTMSE scheme.

    Features of Collateral Free Loans

    These loans are packed with features, such as:

    • Loans available up to Rs.1. crore for MSEs as per the terms of the MSMED Act, 2006.
    • Loan can be availed by both existing and new MSEs.
    • Higher loan amounts are available on a case-to-case basis. Upper amounts generally attract collateral, though at a lower percentage as compared to the general loan products.
    • Working capital assistance or Term Loan is available.
    • Margin of 75%, 80% or 85% as per the category of applicant.
