Neglected MSMEs in Indore threaten to boycott GIS 2014

MSME representatives have charged the state government with not keeping up promises made in last 10 years.

MSME at state's backyard feel neglected and have threatened to boycott global investment summit to be held in Indore from October 8 to 10, as reported by The Times of India.


MSME representatives have charged the state government with not keeping up promises made in last 10 years.


“In every election from 2003 to 2013, BJP promised a separate department for MSMEs in its manifesto, but it never turned into a reality. In last 10 years, state's focus has been on big and mega industries. MSMEs are nowhere in picture,” Ashok Khandelia, president, Association of Industries, Dewas, told TNN.


Government has now promised a lot, including reforms in land allotment and industrial policy- both to be MSME friendly- but how much is delivered is yet to be seen, he said.

"Their entire focus is on GIS and they are visiting international markets seeking investments, but there is no focus on state. It is eyewash. They call us just for participation and nothing happens thereafter," Deepak Sharma, President, Madhya Pradesh Laghu Udhyog Sangathan (LUS) told TNN.


"Craters on Govindpura Industrial Area is an example of the plight of MSMEs in MP. The only industry that can flourish here is fisheries in the ponds and potholes of the roads during monsoon," Sharma added.


For record there are about 1.09 lakh registered MSMEs generating employment to 45 to 50 lakh people in state.
