Minister for MSME and Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari has called for the creation of a rating system for MSMEs and a Dashboard for effective monitoring of MSME schemes. While addressing a webinar, he said simple and transparent methodology should be evolved to give ratings to MSMEs having good turnover, GST records to enable them to get finances from the banks and institutions. The Minister said the whole world now wants to invest in Indian industry and with an effective rating system, MSMEs can get good investment from abroad.
He also proposed setting up of dashboard for monitoring schemes to prevent delays in decision making. He asked SIDBI to take decisions within three months and provide support. The Minister said MSMEs have an important role to play in achieving Atamanirbhar Bharat. Gadkari said it is time to make our system transparent, time-bound, result-oriented and performance-oriented and help appropriate entrepreneurs with a good track record.
