Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise (MSMEs) constitute over 90 percent of total enterprises in most of the economies .The sector is critical in meeting the national objectives of generating employment, reducing poverty, and discouraging rural-urban migration. MSMEs manufacture more than 6,000 products ranging from traditional to high tech items. These enterprises help to build a thriving entrepreneurial eco-system, in addition to promoting the use of indigenous technologies. Indian Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) sector has emerged as a highly vibrant and dynamic sector of the Indian economy over the last five decades. SMEs not only play crucial role in providing large employment opportunities at comparatively lower capital cost than large industries but also help in industrialization of rural areas. MSMEs account for about 45% of India’s manufacturing output./.

The Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) play a pivotal role in the economic and social development of the country, often acting as a nursery of entrepreneurship. They also play a key role in the development of the economy with their effective, efficient, flexible and innovative entrepreneurial spirit. The MSME sector contributes significantly to the country’s manufacturing output, employment and exports and is credited with generating the highest employment growth as well as accounting for a major share of industrial production and exports. The labour intensity of the MSME sector is much higher than that of large enterprises. MSMEs constitute more than 90% of total enterprises in most of the economies and are credited with generating the highest rates of employment growth and account for a major share of industrial production and exports. The MSME sector in India is highly heterogeneous in terms of the size of the enterprises, variety of products and services, and levels of technology.

Mr. Anil Khaitan
Immediate Past President
With the government of India putting the development of the MSME sector as top priority, and the state governments of the eastern region aligning themselves to this objective through implementation of various schemes, the future for MSMEs in the east is brightening up. The MSME companies need to be aware of the schemes and financial aids being offered through various banking and non-banking channels to fund their innovation. With increasing participation of SMEs in the innovative exchange platform, along with their active opt-in for third party credit ratings, access to capital, both equity and debt, should no longer be a bottleneck for growth and expansion. These financial aids and processes will not only give the MSMEs a much needed reprieve from their liquidity crunch, but also help them in instilling the rigour of process, transparency and quality. To achieve these goals, chamber was set up facilitation centre to facilitate the members to access various support services and schemes of the Government and other agencies.”
