New Delhi: In a major impetus for the micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) sector, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Friday announced two per cent interest subvention for MSMEs under the Goods and Service Tax (GST) on fresh or incremental loans.

While presenting the Union Budget 2019-20 in Parliament, Sitharaman said Rs 350 crore has been allocated for the same, adding that the interest subvention scheme is expected to benefit about 20 per cent of GST-registered MSMEs.

 

"Investment in the MSME sector will receive a big boost if delays in payment are curbed," she said while acknowledging that increased investment is necessary in infrastructure and job creation for MSMEs.
