Central public sector enterprises (CPSEs) across ministries have kicked off FY22 procurement of goods from micro and small enterprises (MSEs) with a cumulative 27.65 per cent share (for April, May, and the first week of June) in their overall purchase. The annual procurement target for government buyers from MSEs is 25 per cent of their total purchase. The targetted procurement included a 4 per cent target from MSEs owned by SC/ST entrepreneurs and a 3 per cent target from women-owned MSEs. According to the data from the MSME Ministry’s public procurement policy monitoring portal MSME Sambandh, 35 CPSEs have made procurement worth Rs 2,884 crore as of June 6, 2021, of which Rs 797.65 crore (27.65 per cent) worth procurement was made from 2,052 MSEs. The share of FY21 and FY20 procurement from MSEs was 31 per cent and 30 per cent respectively.
