MSME Schemes for Startups: Empowering India’s New Entrepreneurs

India’s startup ecosystem is vibrant, driven by innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit. To support this growth, the Ministry of Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSME) offers several schemes specifically designed to aid startups. Here’s an overview of some key MSME schemes that can help startups thrive:

1. Prime Minister’s Employment Generation Programme (PMEGP)

PMEGP is a credit-linked subsidy program that encourages self-employment through the establishment of micro-enterprises. Startups can benefit from subsidies ranging from 15% to 35% based on the location and category of the entrepreneur.

2. Credit Guarantee Fund Trust for Micro and Small Enterprises (CGTMSE)

CGTMSE offers collateral-free credit to startups, allowing them to secure loans without providing any collateral security. This scheme ensures that startups can access financial resources to fuel their growth without risking personal or business assets.

3. MSME Market Development Assistance (MDA)

This scheme supports startups in expanding their market reach by subsidizing the cost of participating in international trade fairs and exhibitions. It also helps in promoting Indian MSME products globally.

4. Cluster Development Programme (CDP)

CDP aims to enhance the productivity and competitiveness of startups by providing support for the establishment of Common Facility Centers (CFCs). These centers offer facilities such as testing, training, and research and development, which can be shared by a group of enterprises.

5. Technology and Quality Upgradation Scheme (TEQUP)

TEQUP encourages startups to adopt energy-efficient technologies and improve quality standards. The scheme provides financial assistance for acquiring technology and implementing quality certification.

6. Incubation Scheme

This scheme offers support for setting up Business Incubators (BIs) to nurture innovative business ideas into viable business propositions. Startups can get financial assistance for infrastructure development, training, and mentoring.

7. Credit Linked Capital Subsidy Scheme (CLCSS)

CLCSS provides a capital subsidy for the modernization of startups. This helps startups to upgrade their technology and machinery, thereby improving their productivity and competitiveness.

8. Lean Manufacturing Competitiveness Scheme (LMCS)

LMCS aims to enhance the manufacturing competitiveness of startups by implementing lean manufacturing techniques. It provides financial assistance for training, consultancy, and implementation of lean manufacturing practices.


MSME schemes offer a robust support system for startups, addressing various aspects from financial assistance to technological upgradation and market development. By leveraging these schemes, startups can significantly reduce their operational costs, improve their competitiveness, and accelerate their growth.
