20% mandatory procurement from Start Ups/Small/Micro enterprises: Inputs Sought

In 2016 after our recommendations, Ministry of MSME had mandated 20% procurement for Central Ministries/Depts/CPSUs via Micro and Small Enterprises last year (attached circular).

We would like to seek your inputs on whether your business has benefited from this revised procurement guideline for Government and how. more

its time to investment programme for msme also. they seek for financial resourses. more  
Unless Govt Deptts register Vendors from micro, small & medium size business units in different domains (IT Software, Manufacturing, different services etc..), they will never receive any queries. It is strange that Govt Deptts can not find out the purchase statistics from their own data from March 2016 onwards when this letter was issued. If there is a genuine interest to encourage start ups/ micros/ SMEs, such feed backs need not be asked from industry. We, in fact, would like to know how many units (including % in each case) have so far been registered as Govt Suppliers. Suggest the Govt, both at the center & state levels, takes the issue seriously, otherwise the best of small sector units may be compelled to close down due to atrophy of their financial muscles. Hope this will be taken by the concerned authorities as a wake up call. more  
All such units can be given ancillaries status like what is prevailing in all PSU units as well as under the vendor development and registration procedure s .
The import substitute units can be given priorities n needs to be encouraged.

is this applicable to only those companies producing tangible things or also those that are in intangible services sector like consultancy, career guidance for children etc.? more  
Even though the circular states no prior track record / financial statements necessary still the public sector tenders ask for past three years financial statement. There should also be relaxation in EMD / Security deposits. I don't think it has benefited start-ups. more
