Rs 5,000-cr venture fund proposed for MSMEs

While presenting the Budget for 2012-13, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee said: "In order to enhance availability of equity to MSME sector, I propose to set up a Rs 5,000 crore India Opportunities Venture Fund with SIDBI."

He said small and medium enterprises are the building blocks of the country's economy and they rely primarily on loans from banks and informal sources to raise capital.

He said MSME sector is a fertile ground for the production of low-cost medical devices.

"In order to provide impetus to this sector, I propose to reduce basic customs duty to 2.5 per cent with concessional CVD of 6 per cent on specified parts, components and raw materials for the manufacture of some disposables and instruments," he added.

He also extended full exemption from basic customs duty and CVD to specified raw materials for the manufacture of coronary stents and heart valves.

Further, he informed that with the objective of promoting market access to micro and small enterprises (MSEs), the government has approved a policy which requires ministries and CPSEs to make a minimum of 20% of their annual purchases from MSEs.

Of this, 4 per cent will be earmarked for procurement from MSEs owned by SC/ST entrepreneurs, the minister said.

Further, the turnover limit for compulsory tax audit of accounts as well as for presumptive taxation is proposed to be raised from Rs 60 lakh to Rs 1 crore for SMEs.

In order to augment funds for SMEs, Mukherjee proposed to exempt capital gains tax on sale of a residential property, if the sale consideration is used for subscription in equity of a manufacturing SME company for purchase of new plant and machinery.
