In January, the government had approved the creation of a credit guarantee fund to back the Mudra Yojana under the Stand Up India scheme. The objective was to leverage the institutional credit structure to reach out to undeserved sectors of the population, including Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes and women entrepreneurs.

The Mudra credit guarantee fund is expected to guarantee over Rs 1 lakh crore worth of loans to micro and small units initially. Among other incentives for startups, the government has started providing tax exemption to eligible companies for three years from incorporation. Only companies registered after April 2016 can apply for the tax benefits. DIPP has proposed that the time limit for tax exemption be extended to seven years.

Once the guidelines are finalized, they are likely to be submitted to the cabinet for approval. DIPP is also monitoring the disbursal of money from the fund of funds by Sidbi. Of the Rs 10,000 crore provisioned for startups, Sidbi has sanctioned Rs 168 crore for six alternative investment funds.
