SOP for extending loan in Fisheries sector Awareness progs. for Isles fishers held


Port Blair, July 24: The Zonal Fisheries Office, South Andaman conducted awareness programmes on Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) devised in consultation with Banks/Insurance Firms for extending loan in Fisheries Sector for the benefit of local fishermen of the Islands at Fish Landing Centre, Junglighat, Dugnabad village and Haddo village recently.
During the programme, fishermen were informed about various schemes and programmes being implemented by the Department of Fisheries for the benefit of fishers/tribes and other stakeholders by availing subsidy. Despite selection of large number of beneficiaries under each programme, only few beneficiaries have availed the benefits due to non-availability of sufficient finance from their end to meet the balance cost.
Further, to provide financial assistance, the Officers from Fisheries Department informed the fishermen about the SOP which has been worked out to extend loan by the Banks to the interested beneficiaries under Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana, so as to meet the balance cost excluding subsidy extended by the Department for such schemes. Interested fishermen have been requested to submit application forms under various programmes by July 31, 2019.
