Chhattisgarh government reduces interest on loan under Saksham Yojna


Chhattisgarh government has reduced the rate of interest on loan given to women and their self help groups (SHGs) under Saksham Yojna from 6.5 per cent to 5 per cent. The initiative will allow the women and SHGs to easily avail the loan facility for self-employment and thereby become self-dependent.

States Women and Child Development Minister Ramsheela Sahu took decision in this regard while chairing a meeting of the governing body of Chhattisgarh Mahila Kosh (CMK). The Chhattisgarh Mahila Kosh is operated by state’s women and child development department to disburse easy term loans to women and SHGs.
