Guwahati, 2 October 2017
Union minister of state for railways Rajen Gohain urged banks to utilise the Micro Units Development and Refinance Agency (Mudra) loan scheme more.
Gohain said the Mudra loan scheme to promote entrepreneurship should not remain just on paper but benefit the Northeast, especially unemployed educated youths. There are over 15 lakh educated unemployed in Assam.
He said loan repayment is equally important on the beneficiaries' part. "If loans are repaid on time, banks get confidence in giving out loans for future ventures. Banks should encourage people for Mudra bank scheme,"
