Can MUDRA Bank Yojana Really Be A Game Changer For India?
- Definitely it will be a game changer for India. Majority of Indians are poor and live in rural and interiors parts of the country. Most of them don’t get the facilities that are termed very basic even by Indian standards.
- Most of fellow citizens do not have access to any farmland and being jobless, they are force to leave their own creativity to feed themselves and survive. Majority belongs to scheduled caste and scheduled tribes, which keeps them deprived.
- It is to be noted that most of the micro enterprises, retail or trading are initiated by women. Women control the enterprises with no exposures to education or any kind of formal training.
- So if we imagine India harnessing the free spirit of enterprise and some guidance, support or training the potential to get an immediate jump in GDP is possible.
- If MUDRA continues support to the underprivileged and extend its reach in every part of the country then it may emerge as a big success story.
