MSME Ministry to boost IT infrastructure

In a bid to help MSMEs reduce their IT infrastructure costs, the MSME Ministry is planning to introduce a cloud computing scheme for the sector.

In a bid to help MSMEs reduce their IT infrastructure costs, the MSME Ministry is planning to introduce a cloud computing scheme for the sector.

In this context, Pankaj Gupta, divisional chairman of Indian Industries Association (IIA) in Meerut said to a Bizxchange correspondent, “This endeavour will definitely help Indian MSMEs, many of which do not have the funds to afford setting up of any IT infrastructure at all. Besides, given the present IT boom in the country and the outsourcing contracts coming to India from foreign companies, the government’s endeavour will surely equip MSMEs to handle those orders.”

Significantly, the Ministry is considering starting a Web-based company in collaboration with Google and Amazon, among others, to provide Web infrastructure sharing facilities to MSMEs.

However, Dinesh Kumar Tomar, proprietor of Compurx Infotech Private Limited, a small-sized unit in New Delhi which provides enterprise resource planning-related solutions, said, “It depends on how and what the government is offering to the MSME sector. Unless the government is planning to offer advanced IT solutions, SMEs will gain little benefit from it.”

With the government waking up to the need for cloud computing for MSMEs and offering IT infrastructure to the sector, MSMEs are surely in for great times ahead because their input costs are likely to be reduced by this endeavour.
