BJP's manifesto considers SME sector important for the country's development
The Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday released its manifesto for 2014 general elections, putting a close eye on MSMEs (Micro, small and medium enterprises). BJP considers that the role of SME sector is crucial for the economic development of the country.

The sector needs to be developed by providing international linkages for exports, availability of credit through a dedicated SME bank, supply chain efficiencies, adoption of IT, support in R&D and innovation, and a policy support for enhancing the mandate to purchase from SME for large scale projects. Overall goal is to enhance the competitiveness of the SME sector leading to a larger contribution to our economic growth and employment generation.

Cooperative Sector

Every effort will be made to encourage the cooperative sector. BJP commits to review the existing laws with regards to the cooperative sector, and will amend the multi-state cooperative act to remove lacunae and anomalies.


The party says that it will move up the value chain of the sector driven by a focus on Quality.

Market linkages - both national and international.

Access to credit and information and skills upgradation.

Value addition will be encouraged through avenues like - branding, packaging and technology.


Schemes will be drawn for skills upgradation and enhancement of business opportunities for artisans like smiths, weavers, carpenters, hair-dressers, shoe-smiths, and potters.
