    Dear Mr Brij Mohan ji,
    I am delighted to go through your ideas and efforts to bring revolution in the development of the country by your efforts to provide microfinance to the future entrepreneurs of the country. You might be remembering that I am the only lady who wanted to have the branches of SIDBI in every DIC and branch of NABARD in every DRDA office to hove direct involvement of GM DIC and PD DRDA, but till date it has not been done.
    State Bank of India through AISECT oe throung other organisations has started opening KIOSKs in thickly populated villages but SIDBI has not gone to every DIC, NABARD has not gone to every DRDA.
    If this plan of establishing branches in every DIC etc is implemented, the entrep[reneurs could get prompt services. The main problem faced by prospective entrepreneurs is that the project is normally sanctioned by GMDIC but the banks turn them down at their own whims and wishes.
    Dear Brij Mohan ji, please try to analyse my request and represent the case in the interest of Industrial Revolution. We can not provide jobs to the youth of India but we can easily make them entrepreneurs.
    Entrepreneurship is the backbone of development and we will have to motoivate the masses to adopt entrepreneurship and SIDBI will have to play an important role in this direction.
