The NCDC sanctions funds in the shape of loan (70% approx.) and subsidy (30% approx.) to the State Govt. and the State Govt. sanctions the subsidy part as such- but the loan part is further divided in Govt. loan varying from 30% to 40% and Govt. equity from 60% to 70%. Loan part is sanctioned in favour of the Project Implementing Agencies (PIA) i.e. concerned Cooperative Bank operating in the concerned district. Such loan is further sanctioned in favour of the beneficiary cooperatives by the Project Implementing Team (PIT) who works under the direct supervision and control of the Chief Executive (M.D.) of the concerned Cooperative Bank. Amount of subsidy and Govt. equity is also routed through Project Implementing Agency and the Project Implementing Team releases the same in favour of the beneficiary Cooperatives.
