Micro, Small, and Medium-Sized Enterprises are more commonly referred to as MSME. The foundation of the Indian economy is MSMEs. More than 6 crore MSMEs, which operate covertly in various regions across the nation, are essential to the development of a more powerful and independent India. The GDP of the nation is significantly impacted by these modest economic drivers.
In this era of economic prosperity that we are currently experiencing, MSMEs have proven to be the backbone of the new India and its growth engine. MSMEs have gradually contributed to the resurgence of the artisan class in the remote areas of the nation by giving them jobs, which in turn gave them access to loans and other services. They have sparked the modernisation of the nation as a whole and continuously promote the growth of the nation’s infrastructure and technology.
