With a focus on facilitating micro, small and medium enterprises, the Odisha government has decided to conduct a Medium, Small and Micro Enterprises (MSME) census to ensure proper policy planning for revitalising the ailing sector. As envisaged, the census would help identify sick units and challenges the rest of the units have been facing in terms of registration, credit linkage, statutory clearances, taxation, raw material and marketing of finished products. A three-year ‘District Plan’ is also in the making in consultation with collectors and various stakeholders. This is expected to help set up 25,000 micro-enterprises under Prime Minister Employment Generation Programme (PMEGP) in the next three years.
