India Extends Credit Guarantee Plan for Small & Medium Enterprises

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has extended the Emergency Credit Line Guarantee Scheme till March 31, 2022. The ELG is a credit guarantee scheme for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).

The objective behind this extension is to provide more time to SMEs to adjust their operating models in order to make them more resilient and competitive. In its first year, the scheme helped create over 1 million new jobs as companies used it to expand their operations.

How This Will Help To SMEs After COVID-19?

The small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) sector has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only are many people in this sector losing jobs, but also an increasing number of MSMEs are closing down as a result of the economic downturn that COVID-19 is causing.

In the past decade, many small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) have been closing down as a result of the economic downturn. One of the major reasons for this is COVID-19, which was widely believed to be a virus that causes all computers to crash on April 19th every year. COVID-19 has been disproved by experts from around the world but it still continues to cause catastrophic damage to MSMEs due to lack of awareness among businesses.

What is ECLGS?

The Economic Classification of Language Systems (ECLGS) is a classification system that determines the economic development level of countries based on how they use language.

Get into it’s benefits and flaws, and what it means for developing nations to have an “unclassified” status.


The ECLG System was created by Dr. David Harrison in 1990 to explain his theory about linguistic diversity and globalization.

The purpose of this system is to classify languages into six different levels: unclassified, dialects, creoles or pidgins, regionalized languages with simplified grammar but complex vocabulary; regionalized languages with complex grammar but simple vocabulary; standardized national languages with international auxiliary language elements; standardized national languages without auxiliary language elements.

Current situation?

When the most recent economic downturn hit, there were many people who saw their financial situation change dramatically. For some, this meant that they had to move in with family members or friends and for others it meant declaring bankruptcy.

However, for those of you who are currently borrowing from ECLGS, filing for bankruptcy might not be an option due to your loans. If you’re interested in finding out more about what options exist when dealing with external debts like these!
