Chandigarh, Dec 15 – Haryana is working towards getting the industry to register under Udyog Adhaar Memorandum and reorient the District Industries Centres (DICs) as facilitation centres to the existing as well as new industrial projects.
           This was disclosed by Director, Haryana Industries and Commerce, Mr. Ashok Sangwan, who was speaking at the 5th Regional MSME Conclave on the theme of ‘Energising MSMEs by Facilitating Finance and Enhancing Competitiveness’ organised by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), here today.
          He said that as a part of the industrial policy framework, the Haryana Government is working on sector-specific policies to boost sectors of IT, ESDM, Food Processing, retail, defence and aerospace, and textiles. While policies on Textiles and Food Processing will be out in a fortnight, the policies for IT and ESDM are out and have already been put up for stakeholder consultation.
Speaking on the occasion, the Director, Punjab Industries and Commerce, Mr. DPS Kharbanda, said that industry will soon get power supply at Rs five per unit and a notification in this regard is only a few days away.
He said that the Punjab Government has just rolled out the new Industrial Policy at CII’s Invest North conclave last month and is open to any suggestions to improve upon its efforts towards making a more conducive environment for the industry to flourish in the state. Punjab has introduced a tax holiday for both the existing and new industry to benefit from exemptions and huge fiscal incentives on GST, CLU and stamp duty. The Punjab Government has also adopted a cluster-based approach to boost industry in the state. He said that the state government also signed Rs 2,000 crore worth MoUs at the recent World Food India (WFI) which shows enthusiasm of the industry and is likely to convert into serious investment projects soon as well, he added.

With 45 per cent of the MSME sector based in the rural areas, it offers great potential towards rural development. RBI is consciously working towards generating solutions for the needs of the MSME sector. For this a series of programmes are being conducted to sensitise the sector about the various schemes being offered by the RBI to boost industry. MSME units need to be more transparent in dealing with banks to gain their trust for finance needs.”

          Co-Chairman, Regional Committee on SMEs, CII Northern Region, Mr. Neeraj Munjal said, “To address the issue of ‘Access to Credit’, we have created a consortium 12 of leading banks and NBFCs to help and facilitate credit to the SMEs. This is an online Finance Facilitation Centre which in a short span of time has received loan applications from industry to the tune of Rs 826 crore and the same have been forwarded to the consortium partners for action.”
          “CII through its Centres of Excellence has been propagating cluster approach to enhance the competitiveness and linkages with the large industry for the MSMEs. At any given time we are running 15 clusters wherein customized services are being offered to the members enabling them to become sustainable and globally competitive,” he said.
          A special session on vendor development programme in which major PSUs took part and a display of products by various companies were the highlights of the conclave.
