Since times immemorial, the scheduled castes have been socially and professionally disadvantaged. They did not enjoy the same privileges as the rest of the society in any walk of life. They were even referred to as the “Depressed Classes” during the British Rule. However, post Indian Independence, the country started making up for such atrocities by providing the scheduled caste and tribes (SCs/STs) with a “Reservation Status” and guaranteed political representation for them.
In a day and age where the country is striving to provide equal opportunity for all, banks and financial institutions are offering special loans for the scheduled caste so they can meet their needs and requirements like any other sect in the country.
Here are some loans available especially for the Scheduled Caste in India:
NSFDC offers a host of loans, schemes and financial aid specifically for the scheduled caste to meet any requirement such as education loans, loans for vocational training, schemes for farmers and women and green business schemes etc.
This loan provides financing to farmers for the purpose of rural development. Additionally, this loan can also be used to ameliorate conditions of the SCs/STs.
This scheme is meant for unemployed Scheduled Caste members to assist themselves with employment opportunities.
No matter what your background is, you don’t have to define your future with it. Make your own future with these specially designed loans and maximize your potential.
