The Chief Minister Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that Corona pandemic has affected the street vendors involved in small business the most but the state government stands beside them. Madhya Pradesh tops in implementing the Pradhan Mantri Street Vendors Atma Nirbhar Nidhi (P.M. Swa Nidhi) scheme, which is being implemented in the state to help the street vendors to continue their business and to increase it. Shri Chouhan said that maximum benefit of the scheme will be given to small businessmen like vegetable vendors, people running chaat shops and related to tailoring works besides tea sellers in the state, so that all these can be saved from the burden of interest and can conduct their business smoothly for the sustenance of their families. The government will lend full support to the people doing small businesses to remove their economic difficulties. The Chief Minister Shri Chouhan was holding talks with the street vendors of the state through Video conferencing from Mantralaya. Street vendors were very joyous to have very affectionate conversation with the Chief Minister Shri Chouhan and most of them addressed Chief Minister Shri Chouhan as Mama.

The Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that under the scheme, the process of providing identity cards to all registered street vendors in the state should be completed. He said that the scheme will be reviewed constantly. Apart from urban street vendors, a scheme to provide interest free assistance of Rs. 10 thousand is being implemented for the street vendors of rural areas of the state. On timely repayment of the loan, double amount i.e. Rs. 20 thousand will be sanctioned next year. The Chief Minister Shri Chouhan further said that many times, a person engaged in small business spent all his life time in paying off the debt. Under this scheme, the beneficiary will have a facility to repay the loan in one year and business of everyone will get boost because of the loan without interest. The government will take the loan guarantee. Many businessmen who had shut down the business will now be able to restart their business.

Progress

The Pradhan Mantri Street Vendors Nidhi Yojanahas been launched to provide benefit to beneficiaries of 378 urban bodies of the state. So far, 15 thousand 500 cases have been approved in the state and interest free loan of total Rs. 15 crore 50 lakh has been approved.
