NSIC Schemes for MSME

Raw Material Assistance Scheme aims at helping MSMEs by way of financing the purchase of Raw Material (both indigenous & imported). This gives an opportunity to MSMEs to focus better on manufacturing quality products.
To meet the credit requirements of MSME units, NSIC has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with various Nationalized and Private Sector Banks. Through syndication with these banks, NSIC facilitates MSME in accessing credit support (fund based or non-fund based limits) from the banks. NSIC assists MSMEs in completion of the documentation for submitting the proposals to the banks and also does the follow up with the banks. These handholding support are provided by NSIC without any cost to the MSMEs
Need of a Performance and Credit Rating Mechanism for SSIs (now Micro and Small Enterprises) was highlighted in Union Budget’04-05. A scheme for Micro and Small Enterprises has been formulated in consultation with Indian Banks’ Association (IBA) and Rating Agencies. NSIC has been appointed the nodal agency for implementation of this scheme through empanelled agencies.
Promotion of the product of Micro and Small Entrepreneurs is one of the major objective of the Corporation. In the present competitive scenario a need has been felt to facilitate Micro and Small Enterprises to market their goods / services individually or collectively through ‘Consortium’. Accordingly, the scheme for promoting the products of the MSEs has been reviewed in 2011 & named as “Consortia and Tender Marketing Scheme”.
The Government is the single largest buyer of a variety of goods. With a view to increase the share of purchases from the small-scale sector, the Government Stores Purchase Programme was launched in 1955-56. NSIC registers Micro & small Enterprises (MSEs) under Single Point Registration scheme (SPRS) for participation in Government Purchases.
Infomediary Services Information today is becoming almost as vital as the air we breathe. We need it every minute of our working lives. With increase in competition and melting away of international boundaries, the demand for information is reaching new heights. NSIC, realizing the needs of MSMEs, is offering Infomediary Services which is a one-stop, one-window bouquet of aids that will provide information on business, technology and finance, and also exhibit the core competence of Indian SMEs. The corporation is offering Infomediary Services through its MSME Global Mart www.msmemart.com; which is aBusiness to Business (B2B) compliant web portal. The services are available through Annual Membership.
Marketing Intelligence Cell acquires and analyzes the information to understand the both existing and potential customers , determine the current and future needs and preferences, attitudes and behaviour of the market; and to assess changes in the business environment that may affect the size and nature of the market in the future. This aims to promote business horizons of MSMEs of India through Marketing Intelligence Web Portal.
India is witnessing rapid growth and prosperity. For this to be truly inclusive, all sections of the society need to partake in this prosperity. Besides wage employment and education, the marginalized sections of the society also need to envision, create and scale - up ventures to be a major participant in this growth story. While in the past, there has been some increase in the number of SC/ST owned enterprises, this needs to increase substantially to enable the socio-economic empowerment of the SC/ST communities. In this context, the National SC/ST Hub is an initiative of the Government of India targeted towards developing a supportive ecosystem towards SC/ST entrepreneurs.
To provide impetus to the marketing efforts of MSMEs, NSIC has constructed Integrated Marketing Development Centre (IMDC). The project has been envisaged keeping in view the growing demand for strategically located space to cater to the commercial & marketing needs of MSMEs/IT/ITeS etc. the building is located in the prime location of Mancheswar Industrial Estate,
NSIC organises and participates in domestic and specialized product & technology related international exhibitions to help MSMEs (erstwhile SSIs) in marketing their products and projects in both national and international arenas. Besides this, NSIC has its own state-of the-art Exhibition Ground in New Delhi (Okhla Ind. Estate). The ground has 1500 sq. mtrs of covered space and about 15000 sq. mtrs of open space in addition to ample parking for about 1000 vehicles. The facilities at the ground are available to exhibition/event organisers.
The Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) sector has emerged as a highly vibrant and dynamic sector of the Indian economy over the last five decades. MSMEs 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 & backward areas, thereby, reducing regional imbalances, assuring more equitable distribution of national income and wealth. MSMEs are complementary to large industries as ancillary units and contribute enormously to the socio-economic development of the country
According to the Fourth All India Census of MSME 2006-07, the MSME sector provides employment to approximately 805.23 lakh persons through an estimated 361.76 lakh enterprises. 55.34% of these enterprises were in rural areas while 44.64% are in urban areas. 68.21% of the enterprises were engaged in services with remaining 31.79% engaged in manufacturing. These enterprises are primarily engaged in activities pertaining to wholesale / retail trade; repair of personal and household goods; manufacture of food products and beverages; manufacture of wearing apparel; dressing and dyeing of Fur; manufacture of textiles; hotels and restaurants; sale, maintenance and repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles; retail sale of automotive fuel; manufacture of furniture; education; and other businesses / services.
