(Earlier CGFT for Small Industries)
Credit Guarantee Fund Trust for Micro and Small Enterprises, is a Trust
formed by the Government of India (GOI) and Small Industries Development
Bank of India (SIDBI) as settlers to operate the Credit Guarantee Fund Scheme
for Micro and Small Enterprises. This aims at providing guarantees in respect of
credit facilities to the borrowers in the small scale sector without any collateral
security and/or third party guarantees.

The salient features of scheme are detailed as under


Eligible Credit Facilities

CGTMSE shall cover credit facilities (Fund based and/or Non fund
based) extended by Member Lending Institution(s) to a single eligible
borrower in the Micro and Small Enterprises sector for credit facility (i)
not exceeding Rs. 50 lakh (Regional Rural Banks/Financial Institutions)
and (ii) not exceeding Rs.100 lakh (Scheduled Commercial Banks and
select Financial Institutions) by way of term loan and/or working capital
facilities, without any collateral security and / or third party guarantees
to all new and existing Micro and Small Enterprises (both in the
manufacturing Sector as well as in the Services Sector excluding
Retail Trade), Credit facilities extended under KVICs Rural
Employment Generation Programme REGP.
All proposals for sanction of guarantee approvals for credit facilities
above Rs. 50 lakh and upto Rs.100 lakh will have to be rated
internally by the Bank and should be of investment grade. Proposals
approved on or after December 8, 2008 will be eligible for the
coverage upto Rs.100 lakh. (Refer e-circular No 214 dated 19.07.2007
& 47/ 2008-09 dated 19.01.2009)
A clarification has been sought from Govt of India, on the eligibility of
Educational Institutions under the Credit Guarantee cover and the
same is awaited.
Therefore till such time a clarification is received
from the Government the Trust has put applications for credit
guarantee cover from Educational institutions on hold (Circular No 30
dated October 20, 2008).

Dues to the lending institutions have not become bad or doubtful of

recovery and/or


The business or activity of the borrower for which the credit facility was
granted has not ceased and/or



The credit facility has not been wholly or partly utilised for adjustment
of any debts deemed bad or doubtful of recovery without obtaining a
prior consent in this regard from the Trust.


Sick Units If the eligible borrower unit which has been covered under
the scheme subsequently becomes sick due to factors beyond the
control of the management, the assistance / credit for rehabilitation
extended by the lender could also be covered under the Scheme
provided the overall assistance is within the credit cap of Rs.50 lacs.


Rephasement / Reschedule of sanctioned limits -- In case of accounts

covered under CGTSI where rephasement / reschedulement is
required, the Member Lending Institutions (MLIs) concerned may
approve the proposal and intimate to the Trust the detailed terms and
conditions of rephasement. (CGFTSI Circular No. 6 / 2002-03 dated
October 22, 2002)

Additional Loan facilities sanctioned If sanction of additional credit

facility to the borrower is granted (within the overall eligible credit limit of
Rs. 100 lakh under CGFTSI), the MLI is required to pay to CGFTSI the
guarantee fee on the additional credit facility sanctioned at the stipulated
rate (presently 1.5%)
(vii) Units already enjoying credit facilities with collateral security Any
additional limits sanctioned to such units subsequently, without
obtaining collateral or TPG upto a limit of Rs.100 lacs is covered under
the scheme.

Additional facilities sanctioned to units who have been already covered

under CGFTSI to a maximum extent of Rs.50 lacs -- If we extend
additional term loans / enhanced working capital facilities to such
borrowing units by taking collateral security and / or Third Party
Guarantee (TPG), if considered necessary, keeping in view the risk
perception. The collateral security / TPG would, however, be restricted
to the additional loan / credit facility only. In such eventuality, the
guarantee cover already extended by CGTSI to the MLIs against such
borrowing units would continue to remain in force through its normal


Limits sanctioned for Agri Clinics and Agri-Business Centres -- The

credit facilities extended by the Member Lending Institutions (MLIs) to
the nine activities under Agri-Clinic and Agri-Business Centres
(ACABCs) can be covered under the CGS provided the finance is
extended as per the terms and conditions of Credit Guarantee Scheme
