The Canara Suraksha scheme will offer a moratorium of six months and the scheme will be valid till September 30, 2021.

  • Canara Chikitsa healthcare credit facility

Under this scheme, the bank will offer loans from over 10 lakh to 50 crore to registered hospitals, nursing homes, medical practitioners, diagnostic centres, pathology labs, and all other units engaged in the servicing healthcare infrastructure.

The loan to be offered at a concessional rate of interest will have a tenure of 10 years with a moratorium of up to 18 months, the public lender added.

For micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), there will be no collateral security, which the lender will cover under Credit Guarantee Fund Trust for Micro and Small Enterprises (CGTMSE), and the bank will bear the guarantee premium.

The CGTMSE is meant to provide financial assistance to such kinds of industries without any third-party guarantee or collateral.
