- New MSMEs can start work without Gujarat government clearances
To give impetus to micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), the Gujarat cabinet on Thursday approved a draft ordinance to amend the MSME Act. The ordinance will come into force after it receives the governor’s assent.
The most important clause in the proposed ordinance allows entrepreneurs to start production without waiting for approvals from government agencies and to secure clearances once their business stabilizes.
Some one lakh MSMEs get approvals through the industries commissionerate portal every year. On average, units need permissions from 12 different departments. In most instances, the start of production is delayed by up to three years.
With some 33 lakh operational MSMEs in Gujarat, the sector is the largest employer in the state.
