Partial Collateral Security under Credit Guarantee Scheme
The objective of the Credit Guarantee Scheme is to strengthen the credit delivery system and facilitate flow of credit to the MSE entrepreneurs without the hassles of collateral security and / or third party guarantee by enhancing the comfort level of the MLIs.
CGTMSE has introduced a new “Hybrid Security” product allowing guarantee cover for the portion of credit facility not covered by collateral security. In the partial collateral security model, the MLIs will be allowed to obtain collateral security for a part of the credit facility, whereas the remaining part of the credit facility, up to a maximum of ₹200 lakh, can be covered under Credit Guarantee Scheme of CGTMSE.
CGTMSE will, however, have pari-passu charge on the primary security as well as on the collateral security provided by the borrower for the credit facility.
Guarantee fee will be charged on the guaranteed amount for the first year and on the proportionate outstanding amount subsequently resulting in lower guarantee fee charged to MSEs.
The above change of allowing partial collateral security under the ambit of Credit Guarantee Scheme of CGTMSE shall be applicable to fresh credit facilities sanctioned by MLIs on or after April 01, 2018.
