Nirmala Sitharama on Thursday stated the government is planning to provide a relief package of Rs 1.7 lakh crore to the underprivileged, poor and migrant workers affected by the lockdown amid the coronavirus outbreak. The scheme has been named the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Scheme.
With hardly any direct benefits to MSME the FM announced to the poor BPL families only. India has 7,00,000 tax paying SMEs? SME need immediate relief to sutain their businesses are completely jolted and disrupted.
Even from the 70 million SMEs in the country 99% have a turnover of less than Rs 250 crores (Rs 2.5 billion).
They do not have the cash to run the operation for more than a month or two and hence the government needs to act and promptly in wake of cylical cash flow of MSME to government treasuery.
