Over the span of two years, the government intends to extend financial assistance to a total of 200,000 eligible applicants, complemented by subsidies and an interest-free loan that carries a five-year repayment period. Selected beneficiaries are required to engage in a month-long training program, during which they will receive a stipend of Rs. 10,000.
