Why PM Svanidhi Scheme launched
Which vendors are eligible for the loan, and how do they apply for it?< /p>
All vendors who are doing vending on or before 24th March 2020 and having a vending certificate can avail the loan. As per the Street Vendors Act 2014, the Town Vending Committee (which includes the local authorities and vendors of an area) issues a certificate of vending after surveying all the vendors. But since many states and cities have not done the survey yet, many vendors have not been able to get any such certificate of vending. In such a situation, as per the plan, urban local bodies – in this case, municipalities – will provide a letter of recommendation for each seller willing to take the loan. “Survey is not required for this scheme. ULBs can issue an LOR, or apply if the vendor is a member of a vendor association. ” While the requirements for LORs vary, many ULBs demand proof of vending, including a photograph of a vendor on the spot.
These documents including ID proofs are uploaded on a special portal created for the scheme, and the loan is sanctioned by the bank and ideally, disbursed in 10-15 days.< /p>
