Startups will soon be able to take loans of up to Rs 5 crore without collateral through a credit guarantee scheme prepared by government. The scheme is awaiting cabinet approval and is likely to become functional soon under the supervision of the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion. Government will provide up to 80% risk cover for collateral-free credit given by banks to startups.
