When asked about the grievances of small industries in terms of loans concerns from banks, Gupta said, “Small businesses working on formal basis have no problem in getting loans from banks. Banks are ready to lend, the problem can only be related to your account and business. If all the work is under formal system then the banks are ready to lend.”
