These business units can use the credit for income-generating activities related to agriculture, trading, manufacturing, and services.

The Minister proceeded to provide more details, saying that the government has made several efforts to raise awareness about PMMY throughout the nation. Among these include print, television, radio, hoardings, town hall meetings, financial literacy and awareness camps, specific drives for financial inclusion, and hoardings. Banks also engage in public relations through Banking Correspondents (BCs) and their branches.
