The maximum project cost for up-gradation under manufacturing sector is Rs.1.00 crore and under service/trading sector is Rs.25.00 lakh. Maximum subsidy is 15% of the project cost (20% for NER and Hill States) i.e. Rs. 15.00 lakh in Non-NER and Rs. 20.00 lakh for NER and Hill States. The benefit of this assistance is available across the country, including aspiration districts.

(c) & (d): Women are covered as Special Category under PMEGP and are entitled to higher rate of subsidy, i.e. 25% in urban areas and 35% in rural areas, whereas General Category beneficiaries are entailed to 15% and 25% subsidy in urban and rural areas respectively. Besides, women beneficiaries have to pay only 5% of project cost as self contribution, whereas General Category beneficiaries pay 10% of project cost as self contribution.
