It has been actively supporting the states with its expertise in training, research and consultancy. That includes preparation of project reports, feasibility reports, product profiles, identifying potential activities, potential entrepreneurs, spotting resources and technologies, posterior and concurrent evaluation of schemes and projects being implemented. The Institute has also been assisting the states in the implementation of various schemes and programmes – both those given by the GoI, and those floated by the states – in the states. It has been organising seminars and workshops concerned with different aspects of MSMEs for different wings of the state governments. Although the Institute is located in the city of Hyderabad in southern India, it gives equal emphasis and attention to the states in every part of the country. A small sample of the states where the Institute has taken its services includes Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan and the island state of Andaman and Nicobar, apart from Andhra Pradesh. The range of services offered included conducting workshops and organising training for the industry extension officers. Prominent among our reach to the states is our long-lasting association with the states of the North-Eastern Region (NER). Sponsored by the DoNER of the GoI, we have been conducting a long series of mainly capacity building programmes for them, several of which have been completed to the satisfaction of the delegates as well as the sponsors and the state governments. We at ni-msme strongly endeavour that the states of the NER should derive the full benefit of the GoI schemes for MSME promotion to put their economies in the galloping mode. And the Institute will extend a strong hand to them in achieving it. Only in the recent past we had conducted cluster diagnostic studies in several states including Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, and had submitted the reports. Similar initiatives are waiting to take off in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh, and Rajasthan. Also, we have executed a series of entrepreneurship development programmes for the states of Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. Our emerging association is with the state of Kerala. Following the discussions with the state secretary, we are custom designing a string of long term training programmes for the industry extension officers of Kerala. They are due to take off shortly. The programmes will be designed with an innovative, practically oriented approach. The total length of each programme would be 18 weeks, of which the fist three months will be on the campus, while the rest of the time will be annexed to field assignments in their home state. Towards the end of the programme, each participant will be required to prepare and present a thorough bankable project report, with action plan, which they are expected to implement on return to their respective work situations. This coordination between classroom theoretics and practical field work would sharpen the skills and competencies of the participating officials, and thus help the state to achieve good results in their MSME promotion initiatives. All this is by way of pointing out that the states have enormous scope for utilising the services and expertise of the Institute. Considering that 26 ministries of the GoI, including ours, are concerned with MSME promotion directly or indirectly, a large number of schemes are likely to be unloaded on the state platforms. To get the best out of the situation, the states have to be prepared and ready, by backing up their officials with awareness of GoI schemes and using them for income generation in the state. It is relevant to note here that many states are still behind in adopting the MSMED Act 2006, which is beneficial to entrepreneurs as well as entrepreneurship development agencies. New concepts are making their way across the horizon all the time and some of them are catching up fast: concepts like supply chain management, global value chains, intellectual property rights and micro finance are significant for the entrepreneurs. To ensure effective MSME promotion in the circumstances, continuous capacity building of concerned officials through programmes in training of the trainers in strategies like cluster development, general MSME promotion, financial schemes for entrepreneurs, and the emerging concepts is absolutely necessary. ni-msme, which has recognised expertise in all facets of MSME promotion, is ready to reach out and assist any state with its services.
