MSMEs will have to submit a certificate from their chartered accountant confirming the input credit claims to avail of these loans. The facility is available till end of March 2018.
SBI will give moratorium on repayment for the first three months.
Accordingly, repayments can be done either in one bullet payment or in six monthly instalments after the moratorium period is over.
