"We are working on the new policy for MSME to address the issue and problems faced by the sector," Mishra told a meeting of trade and industry fraternity here.

He said the Ministry was holding meetings with MSME related organisations and bodies to make the comprehensive policy, and also invited suggestions from the businessmen from the state.

The minister was addressing the meeting 'Prospects, Future and Opportunities for MSMEs in Rajasthan' organised by the Federation of Rajasthan Trade and Industry (FORTI) in which the Minister was apprised about the problems of the sector.

FORTI President Suresh Agrawal said that requirement of registration with different departments for setting up MSME causes inconvenience and takes time hence a nodal officer should be appointed under single window policy to simplify the procedure.

He said there was a need to redefine MSME in context of today.

Chief Patron of FORTI Surjaram Meel said NOC from pollution control authorities should not be mandatory for all units except ‘Red Category’ industries in order to promote industrialisation.

Senior Vice Presidents Arun Agrawal and Kamal Kandoi and other members were present in the meeting.
