The campaign will play at the grassroot level with the District Industries Centers (DICs) playing the lead. And it will also try to find out existing bottlenecks in service delivery and bag suggestions from entrepreneurs for bringing out possible solutions.
The DICs have to play an important role in the campaign and have been directed to make entrepreneurs aware of various steps taken by the Government to provide prompt and hassle-free services. Filing of applications, subsidy entitlement, tax reimbursement and online marketing support are the important measures, the process is going to cover.
Odisha MSME secretary Panchanan Dash said, “In the last few months, we have taken a few initiatives like online filing of Entrepreneurship Memorandum EM-I and EM-II. Steps have been taken to administer various subsidies like capital investment, interest and VAT reimbursement online. Online registration with Export Promotional Marketing (EPM) registration has started. But the efforts will not yield desired results unless the entrepreneurs at the grassroot level are sensitised to utilise them,”
The online filling of EM-I and EM-II has worked well and the online system has boosted registration rate of the department.
