The Importance Of Small Scale Industries  

As per a famous English poem, it is the small drops of water that come together to make the mighty ocean and it is the tiny seconds that club together to create the massive ages and aeons. Thus, the importance of small things need not be overemphasized.  If we see the structural and functional units of the national or social economy, then it is the small-scale industries that play the role of small things.  So, the micro, small and medium scale industries are individually small but collectively they exert a huge influence.

 The Supportive Features Accorded To The MSMEs 

And in the Indian nation (like various other nation states on this globe), various protective and encouraging (socio-) economic features have been accorded to the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSEM). The fundamental premise on which this supportive feature is provisioned is that these MSMEs represent actions and efforts of individuals (and groups of individuals), so they need to be guarded against vulnerable situations put up by large commercial & business groups, due to the superiority inherent in the nature of the big-small relationships.

In order to help MSMEs, the government of India introduced the MSME (Amendment) Bill Of 2018 and re-emphasized on the MSME ACT of 2006. Under these legislations, there would be no need for frequent inspections to check the required investments needed to be made in the plant and machinery needed. In addition, the operations of MSMEs would be allowed to continue in a transparent, non-discriminatory, and objective manner.

Some of the other added benefits of getting your MSME registered under the provisions of these laws are summarised in the section below.

In an effort to protect registered companies, the Supreme Court has decreed that any buyer of goods or services from registered MSMEs should make the payment on or before the agreed date of payment or within 15 days from the day they had accepted the goods or services. If the buyer postpones the payment for more than 45 days after accepting the products or services then the buyer has to pay interest on the amount that was agreed to be paid. The interest rate is three times the rate that is notified by the Reserve Bank of India.

This ensures businesses to increase production and accept more orders without considering the possibility of capital expenditure on costs like electricity and maintenance.
