                           From the Director General’s Desk
                                    At the service of state governments
                                     Though ni-msme is an organisation attached to the Union ministry (MSME), it
                         has always been engaged, since its inception, in servicing the states’ needs of MSME promotion
                         and development. 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.

MSME sector to get easy credit
Minister of State for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) Mr. Dinsha Patel on Tuesday said his priority
would be to provide cheap and easy credit to micro and small firms.
Mr. Patel, who took charge here, said: “The Congress-led United Progressive Alliance Government will address the
credit needs of the MSME sector, beside creating a separate fund for enterprises in the unorganised sector.” MSME
employs over 4.2 crore people and contributes to about 4.5 per cent of the country’s total industrial output and 40
per cent of exports.
Stating that all efforts would be made to evolve a mechanism for addressing the credit needs of the sector, which is
crucial for the overall growth of the economy, Mr. Patel said special care would be taken to meet the credit needs of
the organised sector.
Similarly, to assist micro and small enterprises in marketing their products, the Ministry would propose a procurement
policy, which would entail setting up of targets by government departments and institutions from the MSE sector, he
Keeping in view the requirement of enterprise development and skill development, they would strengthen its existing
programmes and evolve suitable partnership models with State governments and the private sector, he said.
Mr. Patel also said he would interact with the State governments on the issues and problems faced by the MSME
sector, while a review of the khadi sector would be carried out and reforms brought to boost production and
marketing of khadi products.
Similarly, all the schemes recommended by the National Manufacturing Competitiveness Council for enhancing the
productivity and competitiveness of the MSME sector would be operationalised in the coming months, the Minister
