Are there any grants for starting IT business in India?


I have a unique and viable idea but no seed money. I also have low qualification (no college education) so no chance of funding by VCs.

I am aware of many programs by US and other governments. Are there any similar programs in INDIA?

The Government of India has setup a Credit Guarantee Fund Trust for Micro and Small Enterprises.

It provides guarantee for loans upto 1 Core rupees based purely on your business plan. Also if your loan amount is less, you wont be charged anything if your startup fails. Its very much like a grant.

Also, there are many other schemes. You can look here for more information.

Hope this was helpful.
