MSMEs who have good credit history and have good relations with their banks can avail the overdraft facility. MSMEs get the advantage of 1% exemption on interest on overdraft facility. This could be extremely beneficial for MSMEs. However MSMEs should check with their lender as not all banks give this facility
The rate of Interest for enterprise that has MSME registration are lower as compare to other enterprises. Certain targets are set for banks’ lending to the Micro and Small Enterprises. The banks’ have to achieve a 20% growth in credit to micro and small enterprises and 10% annual growth in the number of micro enterprises accounts and 60% of total lending to Micro and Small Enterprises sector. The banks have to follow the following:
1. 40% of the total advances must go to micro and small enterprises involved in manufacturing having investment in plant and machinery up to Rs.10 lakh and for service enterprises having investment in equipment up to Rs.4 lakh.
2. 20% of the total advance to micro and small enterprises should go to manufacturing enterprises that have above Rs.10 lakh till Rs.25 lakh investment in the plant and machinery and for service enterprises that have investments in equipment above Rs.4
3. To simplify, 60% of the advances must go to micro enterprises.
One of the major advantages of registering under the MSME scheme is the protection received by the government against delayed payments. This protection in delayed payments is against the buyers in the transaction of business. If any micro or small enterprise that has MSME registration, supplies any goods or services, then the buyer is required to make payment on or before the date agreed upon between the buyer and the micro or small enterprise. In case there is no payment date on the agreement, then the buyer is required to make payment within fifteen days of acceptance of goods or services. In case of delayed payment, the buyer is required to pay a fine to the MSME registered company. This helps most MSMEs to ensure they have no outstanding debtors or bad debts.
If you have created something new, a new innovative product or business model and want to patent it, there is a hefty fee applied for patent registration. But with the help of MSME registration, one can avail the patent registration at 50% subsidy. This move aims to encourage more entrepreneurs to invent and innovate. They can avail the 50% subsidy by registering with their respective industry.
One of the biggest benefits of MSME registration is the collateral free loans one can avail through banks and NBFCs. This essentially means that SMEs and MSMEs can now take various loans such as working capital loan and credit line loan, without providing any collateral.
As mentioned above one of the greatest things about the MSME market is that it has hardly been affected by outsiders. Due to this, the success of the MSME sector has been magnificent. A major part of this success is due to the reservation policy of the government. There are some MSME sectors who have been given exclusive rights to manufacture certain products. Under the Government Stores Purchase Program, the central government has reserved the purchase of more than 300 products exclusively from this sector. This gives a boost to the MSME market and it is not affected by stiff competition

Viable / potentially viable MSE units/enterprises, which turn sick in spite of debt re-structuring, would need to be rehabilitated and put under nursing. It will be for the banks/financial institutions to decide whether a sick MSE unit is potentially viable or not. The rehabilitation package should be fully implemented by banks within six months from the date the unit is declared as potentially viable/viable. During this six months period of identifying and implementing rehabilitation package banks/FIs are required to do “holding operation” which will allow the sick unit to draw funds from the cash credit account at least to the extent of deposit of sale proceeds.

What is Cluster financing? Cluster based approach to lending is intended to provide a full-service approach to cater to the diverse needs of the MSE sector which may be achieved through extending banking services to recognized MSE clusters. A cluster based approach may be more beneficial (a)in dealing with well-defined and recognized groups (b) availability of appropriate information for risk assessment (c) monitoring by the lending institutions and (d) reduction in costs. The banks have, therefore, been advised to treat it as a thrust area and increasingly adopt the same for SME financing. United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) has identified 388 clusters spread over 21 states in various parts of the country. The Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises has also approved a list of clusters under the Scheme of Fund for Regeneration of Traditional Industries (SFURTI) and Micro and Small Enterprises Cluster Development Programme (MSE-CDP) located in 121 Minority Concentration Districts. Accordingly, banks have been advised to take appropriate measures to improve the credit flow to the identified clusters. Banks have also been advised that they should open more MSE focused branch offices at different MSE clusters which can also act as counseling.
With the enactment of the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development (MSMED), Act 2006, for the goods and services supplied by the MSEME units, payments have to be made by the buyers as under: The buyer is to make payment on or before the date agreed on between him and the supplier in writing or, in case of no agreement, before the appointed day. The agreement between seller and buyer shall not exceed more than 45 days. If the buyer fails to make payment of the amount to the supplier, he shall be liable to pay compound interest with monthly rests to the supplier on the amount from the appointed day or, on the date agreed on, at three times of the Bank Rate notified by Reserve Bank. For any goods supplied or services rendered by the supplier, the buyer shall be liable to pay the interest as advised at above. In case of dispute with regard to any amount due, a reference shall be made to the Micro and Small Enterprises Facilitation Council, constituted by the respective State Government. To take care of the payment obligations of large corporate borrowers to MSEs, banks have been advised that while sanctioning/renewing credit limits to their large corporate borrowers (i.e. borrowers enjoying working capital limits of Rs. 10 crore and above from the banking system), to fix separate sub-limits, within the overall limits, specifically for meeting payment obligations in respect of purchases from MSEs either on cash basis or on bill basis. Banks are also advised by RBI to closely monitor the operations in the sub-limits, particularly with reference to their corporate borrowers’ dues to MSE units by ascertaining periodically from their corporate borrowers, the extent of their dues to MSE suppliers and ensuring that the corporate pay off such dues before the ‘appointed day’ /agreed date by using the balance available in the sub-limit so created.
