Project Objectives

The line of credit was designed to assist NIDB in fulfilling its objective of restructuring the manufacturing sector towards reliance on local inputs and spare parts, by providing the foreign exchange resources to NIDB, for on-lending to promoters of small and medium scale industrial projects which are dependant on local raw materials. The loan also aims at: (i) assisting some selected state DFIs in promoting small scale enterprises; and (ii) providing financial resources to import raw materials for selected NIDB's projects, in order to increase their capacity utlization and eventually reduce the level of arrears to NIDB. The line of credit aims at assisting NIDB in achieving its objective of (i) stimulating and increasing the production and use of local resources; (ii) enhancing backward and forward industrial linkages; (iii) increasing the local value added in industrial production; (iv) rehabilitating and rationalization of the existing porto-folio by providing projects with bright long-terme prospects with permanent working capital; (v) generating employment; (vi) strengthening its financial position; and (vii) promoting small scale projects in rural areas through State DFIs.
