According to news reports, the Modi government has launched a three-year project, Tech-Saksham, in partnership with industry body CII to enable technology adoption among MSMEs in India. This project is likely to create 5 crore jobs in the next five years in the MSME sector. This move will also increase its share to 50 per cent of the GDP in five years etc. Pikender Pal Singh, Senior Director & Head CII, Centre of Excellence for Competitiveness for SMEs has reportedly quoted, “we are organising 10-12 workshops from October onwards in cities that have industrial clusters. We are looking to impact around 10,000 MSMEs through this project.” The Tech-Saksham project was launched by the MSME minister Nitin Gadkari. The project has on-boarded technology giants including Dell, HP, Intel, Vodafone Idea, WhatsApp and Yes Bank to help MSMEs overcome challenges in adopting. As per the ministry, the project would focus on making MSMEs competitive on a global scale, increase their contribution to country exports and leverage cost efficiencies. It is also reported that in its first phase, the project would focus on MSMEs in sectors that are labour-intensive and have the propensity to respond positively to tech-adoption and will spark a larger discussion in other MSME clusters. Pikender Pal Singh, Senior Director & Head CII also quoted, “We are also launching a technology portal that will have e-learning modules, which we are conceptualising, about technology through which we want to reach out around 5 lakh MSMEs across India.”
