The Central Ministries/Departments/PSUs in future, will have to prepare Annual Plan for 20% procurement from MSEs including 4% procurement from Micro & Small Enterprises (MSEs) owned by SCs/ STs and upload the same on their official websites so that MSEs may get advance information about their requirement. Central Ministries/Departments/PSUs have to organize Vendor Development Programmes/ Buyer Seller Meet for developing appropriate MSE vendors including MSE owned by SC/ST entrepreneurs. Besides these, outreach   programmes / special window have to be opened by NSIC especially for SC/ST entrepreneurs. 

 

 The Central Ministries/Departments/PSUs have to declare their achievement in their Annual Reports. In case Central Ministries/Departments/PSUs fail to meet 20%  procurement from MSEs, they have to provide reasons for the same to the Review Committee headed by Secretary (MSME).

 

This information was given by the Union Cabinet Minister for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, Shri Virbhadra Singh in a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha today.
