Dear Sir / Madam

Revision in existing investment limits in plant and machinery / equipment for lending to Micro Enterprises in the 40:20 proportion

In terms of paragraph II (i) of the Priority Sector Circular RPCD.CO.Plan.BC 13/04.09.01/2012-13 dated July 20, 2012, 40 percent of total advances to micro and small enterprises sector should go to Micro (manufacturing) enterprises having investment in plant and machinery up to Rs.5 lakh and micro (service) enterprises having investment in equipment up to Rs.2 lakh; and 20 percent of total advances to micro and small enterprises sector should go to Micro (manufacturing) enterprises with investment in plant and machinery above Rs. 5 lakh and up to Rs.25 lakh, and micro (service) enterprises with investment in equipment above Rs.2 lakh and up to Rs.10 lakh.

2. We have been receiving representations from banks that in view of increase in price index and cost inputs, there is a case to revisit the limits within the overall ceiling of Rs.25 lakh for micro enterprises as defined in the MSMED Act. The matter was discussed in the 14th Standing Advisory Committee meeting held on November 21, 2012 wherein it was decided to revise the existing guidelines. Consequently, the existing ceiling of lending to Micro enterprises in the 40:20 proportions has since been revised, as detailed in the Annex, with immediate effect.

3. You are requested to issue suitable instructions to your branches / controlling offices for meticulous compliance.

4. Please acknowledge receipt.

Yours faithfully,

(C.D. Srinivasan)
Chief General Manager
