Since the PMYBL scheme is purely a business loans scheme, an applicant will have to produce a viable business plan related with their skills and experience for applying the required loan, he said.

That is why SMEDA has come forward to assist the applicants as a lead government organization with business planning and development services, he said adding that all of the SMEDA services related to PM’s Youth Business Loan are absolutely free of Cost.
