PM Mudra Yojana scheme 
UNION Finance and Corporate Affairs Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Sunday said women entrepreneurs are accorded first priority under the Centre’s flagship Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana scheme which offers financial assistance to beneficiaries. Distributing sanction letters to beneficiaries under the PM SVANidhi Se Samriddhi programme which offers loans to street vendors, here, she said officials of the municipalities should identify the uncovered street vendors and help them avail benefits of this scheme.
SVANidhi Se Samriddhi is an additional component of the PMSVANidhi scheme to facilitate access to eight Central Government schemes to eligible PM SVANidhi beneficiaries and their family members for their holistic development and socio-economic upliftment. Recalling the launch of Jan Dhan-Aadhaar-Mobile Trinity, Sitharaman said through the JAM Trinity, AADHAR card was provided to a beneficiary after which he or she can open a bank account and directly the financial aid from the Centre has been transferred to the accounts of a beneficiary thereby avoiding ‘middlemen’.
