Please refer to our circular RPCD.SME&NFS.

We have received enquiries as to whether these guidelines are advisory or mandatory in nature. It is clarified that these guidelines are mandatory and banks must not obtain collateral security in the case of loans upto Rs. 5 lakh extended to all units of the MSE sector.

2. You are requested to issue suitable instructions to your branches/controlling offices for meticulous and strict compliance in this regard.

Yours faithfully,
