PM launches Pradhan Mantri MUDRA Yojana


PM: The biggest capital of the poor is their integrity

PM: Combination of integrity with MUDRA – capital - will be the key to success for small entrepreneurs. पूंजी सफलता की कुंजी
The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today said that supporting the small entrepreneurs of India is the biggest way to help the Indian economy grow and prosper. He was speaking at the launch of the Pradhan Mantri MUDRA (Micro Units Development and Refinance Agency) Yojana in New Delhi. Stressing the contribution of small entrepreneurs in the economy, the Prime Minister expressed confidence that within a year’s time, the major banks would also adopt the MUDRA model.

The Prime Minister said that in our country, one often experiences that things revolve around mere perceptions, while the details often paint a different picture. Giving the example of the perception that large industries create more employment, he said that a look at the details reveals the reality that only 1 crore 25 lakh people find employment in large industries, whereas small enterprises employ 12 crore people in the country.

The Prime Minister said that while there are a number of facilities provided for the large industries in India, there is a need to focus on these 5 crore 75 lakh self-employed people who use funds of Rs 11 lakh crore, with an average per unit debt of merely Rs 17,000 to employ 12 crore Indians. He said that these facts, when brought to light, led to the vision for MUDRA Bank.

The Prime Minister spoke about his time as the Chief Minister of Gujarat, when he focused on the environment-friendly cottage industry of kite making, which employs lakhs of poor Muslims. He said that he brought a research institute from Chennai on board which discovered that small inputs of skill development were needed in the industry. He said that he felt proud that these small efforts helped the kite-making industry grow from Rs. 35 crore to 500 crores in Gujarat.

The Prime Minister also gave examples of other small businesses that, with a little help, have the potential to grow manifold. He said that the biggest asset of the poor is his / her integrity (imaan). By combining their integrity with capital (MUDRA), it would become the key to their success - पूंजी सफलता की कुंजी. Speaking about women’s self help groups in particular, the Prime Minister said that the kind of honesty and integrity showed by these loan takers is seldom seen in any other sector.

The Prime Minister appreciated the efforts made by the banking sector of India in making Jan Dhan Yojana a success. He said that he envisioned that within a year, banks would queue up to give loans to MUDRA applicants. The Prime Minister also congratulated SIDBI on the silver jubilee of its inception, and appreciated the work done by it in supporting India’s small scale industry in these 25 years.

The Prime Minister said that MUDRA scheme is aimed at “funding the unfunded”. He said that the small entrepreneurs of India are used to exploitation at the hands of money lenders so far, but MUDRA will instil a new confidence in them that the country is ready to support them in their efforts that are contributing so heavily to the task of nation building.

The Prime Minister also spoke about the possibilities of value addition in agriculture. He said that, we must aim at creating a whole network of farmers engaged in value addition at the community level. Brand building, advertising, marketing and financial support, when given to such small entrepreneurs will strengthen the foundation of the Indian economy, he said.

The Prime Minister said that this will not entail any big changes in the existing structures, just a little empathy, a little understanding and a little initiative. He urged the banks to study successful models of microfinance, tailored to the local requirements and cultural contexts, which will be enable us to help the poorest of the poor in a big way.

The Prime Minister said that mere launching of new schemes in not progress. Real success lies in real change on the ground, as was seen in the Jan Dhan Yojana and PAHAL, which had delivered concrete results within limited timeframes, he added. He said that the established financial systems will soon move to the MUDRA-model of functioning, i.e. to support entrepreneurs that give employment to a large number of people using least amount of funds.

The Union Minister of Finance, Shri Arun Jaitley, the Union Minister of State for Finance, Shri Jayant Sinha, and the Governor of Reserve Bank of India, Shri Raghuram Rajan, were present on the occasion. 
Release of additional installment of Dearness Allowance to Central Government employees and Dearness Relief to Pensioners, due from 1.1.2015 
The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today gave its approval to release an additional installment of Dearness Allowance (DA) to Central Government employees and Dearness Relief (DR) to pensioners with effect from 01.01.2015 at the rate of six percent increase over the existing rate of 107 percent.

Hence, Central Government employees as well as pensioners are entitled for DA/DR at the rate of 113 percent of the basic pay with effect from 01.01.2015. The increase is in accordance with the accepted formula based on the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission.

The combined impact on the exchequer on account of both DA and DR would be of the order of Rs. 6762.24 crore per annum and Rs. 7889.34 crore in the Financial Year 2015-16 ( i.e. for a period of 14 months from January 2015 to February 2016).

This will benefit 48 lakh government employees and 55 lakh pensioners.

LTC to Some Countries

A proposal to provide Leave Travel Concession (LTC) to Government employees to visit some SAARC countries is in its initial stage of consideration. The details are yet to be finalized. 

The purpose behind the proposal is to enhance people-to-people contact and bilateral ties in the SAARC region through increase in tourism in the region. 
As per the Government’s order dated 26.09.2014, the Government has extended the facility of conversion of home town LTC to visit the states in the North East Region, Jammu & Kashmir and the UT of Andaman & Nicobar Islands for a period of two years up to 25.09.2016. This facility was first introduced in the year 2008. 
Presently, no other proposal is under consideration for including more places under the conversion of Home Town LTC to anywhere in the country. 
This was stated by the Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in Prime Minister’s office Dr. Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question by Shri M. Raja Mohan Reddy in the Lok Sabha today (11/3/2015)

 IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL NEW ASPIRANTS OF POSTMASTER CADRE

Many calls are being received regarding declaration  of results of Postmaster Grade exam 2014. It is learnt assuredly that the results were on the desks at Directorate for final clearance. However some other blogs have published results of some circles . This blog administration does not feel it it fit to try to publish any information before they are cleared officially by Directorate. In fact , it is not a good practice. We can understand the enthusiasm of the candidates and also want to share their excitement . This blog always tried in this way for the best of the cadre. We therefore request the candidates to wait until the results are officially released .  We will publish soon the results are declared. We request others who published such results to  refrain from such practice as it would damage the credibility of the blog.
