Protection of MSME
The provisions of the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development (MSMED) Act, 2006 are effective in promotion and development of Micro and Small Enterprises (earlier known as Small Scale Industries). The implementation of important provisions of the Act such as Delayed Payment provisions and Public Procurement Preference Policy has been helping the promotion and development of the sector. The provision of Entrepreneurs’ Memorandum filing, which replaces the erstwhile system of provisional and permanent registration, has led to simplification of the process.
The policy relating to FDI in multi-brand in retail is under review of the new Government.
This information was given by the Minister of State, Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, Shri Giriraj Singh in a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha here today.
