PM SVANidhi scheme aims at empowering vendors, who took a hit during the Covid period, through hassle-free access to affordable credit. Preneet Kaur, Patiala MP
Preneet says, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Central government is running a progressive scheme to uplift and re-establish street vendors who took a hit during the Covid period. Under this scheme, street vendors are set to be given hassle-free loans up to Rs 50,000.”
Preneet adds, “The PM SVANidhi scheme promises to empower the street vendors through hassle-free access to affordable credit. Under this scheme, vendors selling goods such as vegetables, fruits, and ready-to-eat street food, among others, or services, including barber shops, cobblers, laundry services, etc. can get access to working capital credit from banks, non-banking financial companies (NBFCs), and microfinance lenders.”
“The vendors can apply for the loan through the scheme’s portal or mobile app. They can also approach a nearby Common Service Centre (CSC) or visit the Municipal Corporation office. The process is automated through a mobile app and web portal. It takes less than 30 days for the application to be approved,” she adds.
