The pact with Tansidco (Tamil Nadu Small Industries Development Corporation) is for smooth implementation of the Industrial Infrastructure Initiative Scheme of TIIC, while the partnership with TAICO Bank (Tamilnadu Industrial Co-op Bank Ltd) is to undertake co-lending activities to support the MSMEs.

TIIC has introduced “Industrial Infrastructure Initiative Scheme” with the objective of providing financial assistance to MSMEs to purchase plots in Sipcot and Tansidco industrial estates to set up their units.

Interim loan

The interim loan provided under this scheme enables the MSME units to get their at the plots earliest so that they may start their commercial operations without any delay, based on the first MoU.

Seamless availability of working capital propels the MSMEs to grow and scale up thereby ensuring their viability, besides providing them with a liquidity cushion to carry out their operations.
