Master Circular on Self Employment Scheme for Rehabilitation of Manual Scavengers (SRMS)
Reserve Bank of India had issued instructions in April 2008 to banks regarding operationalisation of the Self Employment Scheme for Rehabilitation of Manual Scavengers (SRMS). To enable banks to have current instructions at one place, a Master Circular incorporating all the existing guidelines/ instructions/ directives/ reporting formats has been prepared and is appended. We advise that this Master Circular has been updated and consolidates all previous instructions on the subject issued by Reserve Bank up till June 30, 2013 (Annexure IV). Particulars of the Scheme as well as the broad guidelines to be followed by the banks in implementing this Scheme are given in the Annexure I. The reporting proforma for the performance and recovery of the Scheme is given in Annexure II and Annexure III, respectively.
