Recently, the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) with a view to modernise tools rooms and training centers had floated a tender with the assistance of the World Bank to acquire CNC Machines, Measuring Instruments and Accessories.
Indian machine tool manufacturers had bid for this tender. However, none of the Indian machines offered were selected due to some minor deviations from the tender specifications, while international vendors were selected.
In this context, IMTMA is working closely with the Ministry of MSME and other government departments requesting a reconsideration of the offers submitted by Indian manufacturers, who are members of IMTMA. It is hoping that its request will be considered.
