Sir, it is heartening to note the initiative. I would request all governments to shift focus from BIG NUMBERS TO TIMELY ASSISTANCE. Most of the times the incentives do not reach the eligible in time and this alone is the reason for crimping the Micro and Small units, in majority of the cases. Of course, certain state financial corporations and banks allow bridge loans against incentives, but the delay will burden the eligible with interests.
