Mudra Loan | Pradhan Mantri Mudra Loan Bank Yojana (PMMY) Details| Apply, Documents Required, Interest rates, Eligibility, Application Form, Government Business Loan
It has been the strongest endeavor of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to bank the unbanked population. He, in all his addresses emphasizes the importance of bringing the unbanked people under the mainstream banking in order to make the neglected section of population self reliant and self dependent. Mudra Bank Loan yojana comes as a vision from the Prime Minister by the slogan, ‘Fund the Unfunded’. MUDRA means Micro Units Development and Refinance Agency. This initiative has been started after the success of PM Jan Dhan Yojana.
Population engaged in small businesses always requires micro finance to facilitate their business and day to day business needs. PM Mudra Bank Yojana would help in facilitating micro credit up to Rs 10 lakh to such small business owners. PM Mudra Bank already has a corpus of more than Rs 70,000 CR and this amount would help in increasing the overall output and creating newer jobs.

Mudra Bank would work on both ends, as per the scheme. It would ensure that proper and adequate credit facility is facilitated to the needy entrepreneurs on one hand, whereas, accurate and efficient recovery method is followed by the banks on the other, to create a justifiable and balanced credit system.

What you should know about Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana
Apart from what we have already informed about PM Mudra Bank, following are the things that you should know as well:
- The Pradhan Mantri Mudra Bank Yojana is said to benefit more than 58 million small business owners in the country. This is one sector under which more than 120 million people are employed and this working population mostly comes from less privileged sections of society.
- The majority of small businesses owners in India have always remain outside the ambit of mainstream bank credit. This is just because banks and financial institutions often focus their products and services for the secured business lot, who would repay at higher interest and have their monies secured. PM Mudra bank yojana would help in getting this trend changed.
- Institutional finance has always been relevant to small businesses. However, inadequate corpus and unorganized management of credit facility to small entrepreneurs never really made it reach the need entrepreneurs. A PM Mudra bank yojana comes with a dream to get the dreams of many young and budding entrepreneurs fulfilled.
- Repayment has always been a concern why financial institutions could not provide required finance to small business owners. With this initiative from the PM office, the scheme is said to take care of this part as well and thus help both financial institutions and needy small business owners come on one single platform.

In essence, on one hand when the card acts as a credit card with a pre-approved loan amount, it also acts as a debit card, allowing ATM withdrawals.
Here is a quick look at how the Mudra Card looks like. This is just the approved design by DFS, Gol:
The Mudra Card will work with RuPay platform and can be used at PoS or Point of Sales. Thus the card will allow users to:
