FM announces 15 measures to revive MSMEs, NBFCs and real estate sectors

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Wednesday announced 15 measures to revive and support business under the mega stimulus package — Self-Reliant India Movement — which was announced by last evening.

Giving detail about the measures, the minister said that six measures are exclusively meant for the MSME sector, while the others pertain to real estate, NBFCs, and general businesses.

Attempts have also been made via these measures to decrease the regulatory burden on companies while increasing the take-home pay of employees.

For the MSME sector, the minister detailed six measures including the new definition of the sector.

Accordingly, the investment limit for defining MSMEs has been revised upwards.

Besides, she highlighted that additional criteria such as turnover have been considered for defining MSMEs.

The Centre has also decided not to go in for global bidding for government procurement for tenders up to Rs 200 crore, thereby, promoting the participation of MSMEs, she said.

Furthermore, e-market linkage for MSMEs will also be provided and that CPSEs will pay all receivables to MSMEs within 45 days.
