The Corporation has taken steps to provide more credit in line with the vision of the government to promote start-ups in all sectors as announced in the Budget, says Tomin Thachankari, Chairman and Managing Director.

A special start-up cell has been set up at the head office to identify potential start-ups and process their applications in a timely manner. Start-ups play a vital role in revitalising the economy after the pandemic, said Thachankari. But they would not be able to grow without timely financial support, he added.
