    DICCI, Nagpur Chapter’s workshop on MSME Procurement Policy on March 5

    Nagpur News : As part of its mission to promote Dalit entrepreneurship, Dalit Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DICCI) in 2011 had strongly propagated for a procurement set off (reservation) in Government purchases for Indian micro and small enterprises (MSEs) and within that a special set-off of further 20 per cent for Dalit MSEs.

    The efforts were successful with Ministry of MSME, Government of India bringing in a new procurement policy for MSE 2012 effective from April 1, 2012 in exercise of powers conferred in section 6 of the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development (MSMED) Act 2006.

    In order to facilitate the above DICCI, Nagpur Chapter is organising a one- day workshop in association with MSME-DI Nagpur to facilitate the implementation of the policy. The workshop is being organised on March 5, 2014 at Hotel Heritage, Civil Lines. It will be inaugurated at 10.30 am. The technical sessions will start from 12.00 noon to 2 pm and from 3 pm to 5 pm. The valedictory function will be held from 5.30 pm to 6 pm.
