ECLGS

Overview

The Emergency Credit Line Guarantee Scheme (ECLGS) is an MSME loan scheme. It has been launched specifically to help MSMEs and other small business entities to deal with the working capital issues caused due to the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent lockdown.
