MSMEs can Now File Complain If Banks Deny their Loan

Sharing is caring!

File MSME Complaints to short out bank non-approved loans.

It is finally a welcome sign to know that policymakers like Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman have finally announced something really substantial in the area of MSME credit. FM Sitharaman has said that micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) can now make a complaint if banks deny them loans without reason.

Sitharaman was in Chennai to explain the Budget proposals to traders, industrialists, economists and the media.

She added the Central government is plugging the loopholes in the Good and Services Tax (GST) with the use of technology and is working towards eight per cent growth rate.

According to her, during the last three months the GST collections have exceeded Rs 1 lakh crore.

She said at the GST Council, state Finance Ministers had said that owing to loopholes tax revenue is not increasing and now that is being plugged.

The GST collections during November and December 2019 were about Rs 1,04,000 crore and Rs 1,03,000 crore respectively and in January it was Rs 1,11,000 crore, said Ajay Bhushan Pandey, Revenue Secretary.

According to Pandey, the government is taking various measures like use of data analytics, data from Income Tax filings, exports and imports and identify where taxes are not being paid.

Pointing out that there are about 1.20 crore entities registered under GST, he said red flag reports are prepared every month and SMS messages are sent to those on whom red flag reports are made.

Pandey said if the tax paid and the tax due difference is large than the taxpayers and also tax officials are notified.

“This has resulted in higher tax collections,” he said.

According to him, the government will continue to use targeted approach and also use data analytics and artificial intelligence.

When asked about the pending GST dues of Rs 4,000 crore to Tamil Nadu, Sitharaman said it would be setting in two months and the due is not targeted at the state alone.

On bringing petrol and diesel under GST regime she said the GST Council consisting of state Finance Ministers have to decide on that and once they agree then it would be done.

Pandey also said once the Finance Bill is passed by Parliament the government will put out the procedure to be followed under ‘Viwad Se Vishwas’ scheme for settling pending direct tax issues.

He also said where the tax department of the government has filed an appeal against the taxpayer then that would be withdrawn.

Queried about the new tax slab rates that would turn India from a saving economy to spending economy, Sitharaman said that an earning individual with additional money on his hands can decide what to do with it and the government need not guide his savings through tax deductions.

According to her, it is just eight days since the Budget for 2020-21 was presented. It will take some time to see whether demand boosting measures stated in the Budget would give results.

Earlier addressing the traders and industrialists, Sitharaman said micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) can complain if banks deny them loans without reason.

Sitharaman said if the banks are denying loans without reason then the MSMEs can send a complaint to the special centre to be announced shortly.

She said a copy of the complaint should also be sent to the concerned bank manager. Sitharaman said the foreign exchange reserves are at a high level as the fundamentals are good.

On her long Budget speech, Sitharaman said that officials had worked hard to come out with proposals for all sections of society.

Stressing that the macro economic fundamentals are good Sitharaman said the focus is on creating assets and investing in infrastructure.

Earlier banks resorted to “phone banking for loan disbursal” lending to “uncles and brother-in-laws” which resulted in high non-performing assets (NPAs).

“It took four years for us to set right the NPAs,” she said.

Sitharaman said lessons have been learnt on how to prevent such a situation again.

She said the government has not resorted to useless spending. The government has decided to create assets investing in infrastructure.

She said public expenditure should go for infrastructure.
