Features of the Scheme

  • Under this Scheme, the Government provides financial assistance to Private Developer for developing readymade sheds in Mini Estate.

Gujarat Government has felt that there is a need for small estates having a small row house type (Gala type) shed for MSEs which will provide basic infrastructure to set up MSEs. This type of mini Estate can be developed by a private developer for MSEs.

  • The government also offers financial Assistance in rent to MSEs

The Government felt that the MSE Industrial units have to keep more margins for purchase of land and building while approving the loan from the financial Institution/ bank. This will affect the working capital requirement and also adversely affect the overall viability of the entire project. In view of above, the government has decided to assist MSEs units in rent which will improve the initial liquidity of the project and also help the financial institution/bank to sanction the term loan on plant and machinery required for the project.
