Standup India was launched by Government of India on 5 April 2016 to support entrepreneurship among women and SC & ST communities.
It is similar to but distinct from Startup India. Both are enabler and beneficiary of other key Government of India schemes, such as Make in India, Industrial corridor, Dedicated Freight Corridor, Sagarmala, Bharatmala, UDAN-RCS, Digital India, BharatNet and UMANG.
The scheme offers bank loans of between ₹10 lakh (US$14,000) and ₹1 crore (US$140,000) for scheduled castes and scheduled tribes and women setting up new enterprises outside of the farm sector.
