"Prepared after a detailed discussion with the Ministry of Textile, the new product specifically seeks to finance working capital needs of weavers (up to Rs 50,000 to be categorised under Shishu and for above Rs 50,000 and up to Rs 5 lakh to be categorised under Kishore category), where the Government of India has agreed to extend financial assistance in respect of margin money subsidy, interest subsidy and credit guarantee fees," it said.

As per the margin conditions, it said, the government will bear a margin of 20 per cent of the cost of the project (working capital) with a maximum of Rs 10,000, while the rest of the amount will have to be borne by the borrower.
