Even more, the disbursement happens within 4 days of the sanction of the loan. Most importantly, you pay the money directly to the OEMs which means no meddle with brokers!

If you are an MSMEs with leased premises, all you have to do is give a right to access to the property to the bank. However, a private lease MSME is also covered (subject to conditions).
