How to get a Business Loan under CGTMSE Scheme without Collateral

The CGTMSE Scheme is an important scheme that every Indian Entrepreneur and Business Owners must know about and understand. To start and manage a business, the availability of an investment in the form of debt or equity is a must and CGTMSE scheme provides easy access to debt funds. In this article, we look at the CGTMSE Scheme in detail and the process for obtaining a bank loan without collateral:

CGTMSE Organization

Availability of bank loan without any collateral is a major requirement for boosting first Generation Entrepreneurship in India. To help millions of first-generation Entrepreneurs start their business with a bank loan (without the hassles of collateral), the Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSME) launched the CGTMSE Scheme. The CGTMSE scheme or Credit Guarantee Fund Trust for Micro and Small Enterprises (CGTMSE) is operationalized by SIDBI and the Government of India.


The main objective of the CGTMSE scheme is that banks should give importance to project viability or business model validation and secure the loan facility only based on the assets financed by the bank loan. In the event a Micro or Small Business (MSME), which availed loan under the CGTMSE scheme, fails to repay the loan commitment to the bank, the CGTMSE organization would make good the loss incurred by the bank up to 85% of the credit facility.

Under the CGTMSE scheme, a bank loan of up to Rs.1 crore provided to a startup or an existing business in the form of term loan or working capital or both can be covered. Businesses in the manufacturing sector and service sector are eligible. However, retail trade, educational institutions, agriculture, Self Help Groups (SHGs) and training institutions will not be eligible to obtain a loan under CGTMSE Scheme.

CGTMSE Scheme Cover

For a loan to be covered under the CGTMSE Scheme, the borrower is required to pay an additional CGTMSE Guarantee and CGTMSE Service fee on top of the interest rate charged by the Bank. Presently, CGTMSE guarantee fee is payable at 1.5% (0.75% in case of North Eastern Region including the state of Sikkim) on the credit facility agreed to be covered by the CGTMSE Scheme.  Similarly, the CGTMSE annual service fee would be payable @0.75% on the guaranteed amount. However as per the “Policy package for stepping up credit to Small and Medium Enterprises“, Public Sector Banks are encouraged to absorb the Annual Service Fee in excess of 0.25% p.a. for all the borrowers falling under the following categories:

  1. Loans of up to Rs. 2.00 lakh;
  2. Loans provided to eligible women entrepreneurs;
  3. Loans provided to eligible borrowers located in the North Eastern Region (including the State of Sikkim) and Jammu & Kashmir.
