MSME stands for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise, and the Government of India introduced the concept of MSME in agreement with MSMED (Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development) Act, 2006.
The MSME sector contributes vastly to India’s socio-economic development and is an important sector of the Indian economy. Contributing to nearly 35% of the country’s GDP, around 40% of the country’s exports and 45% of the manufacturing output, it is right to refer to MSMEs as the ‘Backbone of the country.’ As per the reports, there are currently around 63 Million (https://www.ibef.org/industry/msme.aspx#:~:text=India%20has%20approximately%206.3%20crore,its%20national%20and%20international%20trade) registered MSMEs in India and one can expect equal or more numbers of unregistered as well. Until June 21st units involved in the Manufacturing and Service industry qualified as MSMEs and the Ministry has recently decided to include the Retail and Wholesale sectors also under the ambit of MSMEs
The below table shows bill of 2018 for MSMEs based on their annual turnover.
Getting a loan is difficult for most MSMEs
Most MSMEs face endless problems of accessing finance or availing of an MSME loan. Although the government has implemented appropriate measures for businesses, the regulatory loopholes and the current opaque system hamper the prospects of MSMEs. And most MSME owners due to lack of knowledge are unaware of the various products available to avail loan.
Businesses face issues related to the timely purchase of materials, paying the employees, access to new technologies or increase manpower due to lack of funding. Most MSMEs don’t get the right type of funding, pricing, products/schemes at the right time.
Despite these challenges, success in getting the finance and business right is not difficult to achieve if you find the right source like aagey.com to support your funding needs.
SIDBI (Small Industries Development Bank of India) being the nodal agency acts as the Principal Financial Institution for promotion, financing and development of the MSME sector, and aagey.com is all set to get associated with SIDBI soon.

To aid the MSMEs, the Finance Ministry unveiled a scheme called ECLGS (Emergency Credit Line Guarantee Scheme). ECLGS aims at funding up to Rs. 4.5 lakh crore to MSMEs given the economic distress caused by the COVID-19 pandemic with sovereign guarantee. MSMEs can avail up to 40% of their 29th February 2020 utilization as an additional facility under the ECGLS schemes ( www.eclgs.com )
MSME Minister, Nitin Gadkari, has said that the government is committed to the uplift MSME sector in India and is taking several steps to the contribution of MSME’s industries in the economy.
