B.Sukhanya samridi account

Sukanya Samriddhi Account is another welcome step from Govt of India. Honorable Prime Minister of India, Sh. Narendra Modi Ji launched Sukanya Samriddhi Account “A Small Savings Scheme” on 22nd January, 2015. It is part of “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao initiative of Government of India (GOI) also known as BBB

OBJECTIVE_

Sukanya Samriddhi Account, Govt is trying to give a social message that Girl Child is not a financial burden if parents of a Girl child secure their future through proper financial planning.

 7 Benefits_

1.Highest Interest Rate among all Small Savings Schemes offered by Govt of India_

Sukanya Samriddhi Account will offer interest rate of 9.1% for current financial year i.e. FY 2014-15. It is highest among all Small Savings Schemes.

  1. Tax Savings_

In order to encourage people to open Sukanya Samriddhi Account, Govt has exempted contribution to this account u/s 80C of the Income Tax Act, 1961.

  1. Lock-in Period_

 In my opinion this is the BEST Feature of this scheme. The maturity of account is 21 years from the date of opening of the account or Marriage of the Girl Child, Which ever is earlier. For Marriage, Girl should be of 18 years at the time of marriage. The operation of account is not permitted beyond date of marriage.

  1. Purpose of Sukanya Samriddhi Account_

As i mentioned earlier, it is quite evident that Sukanya Samriddhi Account is launched with sole objective of financial planning for the marriage of Girl Child. Social Message is that Marriage or Education of a Girl Child is not a financial burden if parents plan well in advance.

  1. Maturity Proceeds to be Paid to Girl Child

On maturity of Sukanya Samriddhi Account, the account balance along with accrued interest will be paid directly to the account holder i.e. Girl Child. It gives financial independence to Girl child which is currently missing in India.

  1. Interest to be paid even after Maturity

Unlike other financial schemes where interest is not paid after maturity of the deposit / investment scheme. Unique feature of Sukanya Samriddhi Account is that even after maturity, if the account is not closed by the account holder, Interest shall be payable in the account till final closure of the account.

  1. Flexibility to operate Sukanya Samriddhi Account

Based on past experience, Government of India has given lot of flexibility in terms of account operations. I am listing down few of them

(a) Account can be opened with initial deposit of Rs 1000 and thereafter any amount in multiple of Rs 100 can be deposited subject to max limit of 1.5 lakh during financial year. Every FY, a min sum of Rs 1000 should be deposited to keep account operative.

(b) On attaining age of 10 years, a girl child can operate her account

(c) Account can be closed if it is proved that account is causing undue hardship to the account holder

(d) Account can be transferred anywhere in India

C.MUDRA Bank Yojana

1.BUDGET SPEECH­_

The Prime Minister Narendra Modi  launched the promised Micro Units Development and Refinance Agency Ltd (MUDRA) Bank on 8 April, 2015 with a corpus of Rs 20,000 crore and a credit guarantee corpus of Rs 3,000 crore. The launch was the fulfillment of an announcement made earlier by the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in his FY 15-16 Budget speech

2.MUDRA Bank Make a Difference to the Economy

As per NSSO Survey of 2013, there are close to 5.77 crore small-scale business units, mostly sole proprietorships, which undertake trading, manufacturing, retail and other small-scale activities. Compare this with the organised sector and larger companies that employ 1.25 crore individuals. Clearly, the potential to harness and nurture these micro businesses is vast and the government recognises this. Today, this segment is unregulated and without financial support or cover from the organised financial banking system.

3.The principal objectives of the MUDRA Bank are_

  • Regulate the lender and the borrower of microfinance and bring stability to the microfinance system through regulation and inclusive participation.
  • Extend finance and credit support to Microfinance Institutions (MFI) and agencies that lend money to small businesses, retailers, self-help groups and individuals.
  • Register all MFIs and introduce a system of performance rating and accreditation for the first time. This will help last-mile borrowers of finance to evaluate and approach the MFI that meets their requirement best and whose past record is most satisfactory. This will also introduce an element of competitiveness among the MFIs. The ultimate beneficiary will be the borrower.
  • Provide structured guidelines for the borrowers to follow to avoid failure of business or take corrective steps in time. MUDRA will help in laying down guidelines or acceptable procedures to be followed by the lenders to recover money in cases of default.
  • Develop the standardised covenants that will form the backbone of the last-mile business in future.
  • Offer a Credit Guarantee scheme for providing guarantees to loans being offered to micro businesses.
  • Introduce appropriate technologies to assist in the process of efficient lending, borrowing and monitoring of distributed capital.
  • Build a suitable framework under the Pradhan Mantri MUDRA Yojana for developing an efficient last-mile credit delivery system to small and micro businesses.

4.Major Product Offerings

MUDRA Bank has rightly classified the borrowers into three segments: the starters, the mid-stage finance seekers and the next level growth seekers.

To address the three segments, MUDRA Bank has launched three loan instruments:

Shishu: covers loans upto Rs 50,000/-

Kishor: covers loans above Rs 50,000/- and upto Rs 5 lakh

Tarun: covers loans above Rs 5 lakh and upto Rs 10 lakh

Initially, sector-specific schemes will be confined to “Land Transport, Community, Social & Personal Services, Food Product and Textile Product sectors”. Over a period of time, new schemes will be launched to encompass more sectors.

5.Some of the Offerings Planned for the Future­_
