There can be no better time to start your business or startup than when the Government of India stands ready to help the youth who want to become entrepreneurs. Recently, the Prime Minister had given a very encouraging statement about the startups and innovation that the government would provide all possible support to innovative projects. If you want to start a business of upto 10 lakh rupees or to expand your existing business, then the government's Mudra loan can be a better way for that. There is no need to give any guarantee to the banks and no processing fee is levied to avail the benefits of Mudra Yojana. Mudra (Micro Units Development and Refinance Agency) issues these loans. Being a citizen of India is the first condition for availing Mudra loan. There are three slabs of loans up to 50 thousand, five lakh and ten lakh, which are given to different categories of businessmen. Once the loan is sanctioned, a Mudra card similar to a debit card is provided, from which money can be withdrawn through ATMs. More information can be obtained from the website mudra.org.in.
