Panaji: Goa State Industries Association (GSIA), in their pre-budget memorandum, has urged the state governmnet to introduce Public Procurement Policy for Micro and Small Enterprises (MSEs) on lines with the Central government’s initiative.

GSIA led by its President Damodar Kochkar presented pre-Budget memorandum to the Chief Miniser ahead of the Budget Assembly Session scheduled to begin in March.

“We request that a Public Procurement Policy for Micro and Small Enterprises (MSEs) should be introduced in line with Central Government Policy making it mandatory for all Government Departments/Undertakings to purchase a minimum of 20 percent of their annual purchase of products and services from MSEs,” the memorandum reads.

The GSIA has said that  this initiative will help the Government to increase their revenue by way of higher collection of SGST and will generate more economic activity and employment in the State.

GSIA is the apex body for the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in Goa, would like to thank you for calling us for a pre-budget meeting for the year 2021-2022.

“All these years, mining was the major contributor to state’s revenue and other sectors were not given the desired attention by the State Government. After the closure of the mining industry and tourism sector not picking up as expected due to coronavirus pandemic, manufacturing industry is the only sector which can bring about overall development and create inclusive growth in the State,” the Association has said.

Speaking about Ease of Doing Business, the Association has said that  the initiatives taken to improve Ease of Doing Business (EoDB) are not felt on the ground. For better implementation, the initiatives should be properly monitored and executed.

The GSIA has said that state government should ensure that Single Window System is properly implemented. “At present, online services are not very effective, process is cumbersome and the government staff is not trained to provide assistance. The server infrastructure of IT Department also needs improvement,” the Association said.

The industry body has also demanded that the government should “Stop arbitrary revenue collection without giving due consideration to practical situation on the ground.”

“Stop insisting NOCs from certain departments and marking routine files to the Ministers. Improve work culture in the Departments so that files are not held up with frivolous queries,” the Association has said.
