These include financing in the form of loans or equity, providing grants, and supporting financial incentives to select private sector initiatives to improve financial viability through tax breaks, etc. (for-profit private, non-profit industry association or non-profit NGO)). Over time, NSDC is keen to build stronger effective business models and reduce its grant-making role.
