Leading Issues in MSME Policy & Practice

While the MSME constituency has created substantial institutional structures over time, many of these institutions have outlived their purpose and relevance. While it is important that many such institutions have to reinvent themselves, there is a general lethargy in governance, that often is not conducive to such changes. In such a context, it is the strength, dynamism, and vibrancy of public policy that helps necessary restructuring for the common good. India does not have a strong labour market policy. Naturally, the country cannot visualise an objective picture of its human resources at any point of time. Such a clarity would, naturally, provide both market signals and policy clarity. The public policy architecture in India so far, has been built around the so-called ‘Committee System’, which, structurally, has a built-in ad hocism. Unless this architecture undergoes a major change in favour of a system of evidence based policy making, the contribution of public policy to enterprise development in the country is likely to remain constrained.

India’s MSMEs in the Era of Hubanomics


WISED-223We are now in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The paradigm of Hubanomics has redrawn the SME landscape
globally. Against such changes, it is necessary to examine the new challenges and opportunities of the sector from a futuristic
point of view. In every democracy, the developmental outcomes are decided by people’s aspirations, to begin with. These
aspirations need to be articulated through effective platforms. Institutions are the outcome of these platforms and their
initiatives. People’s mandate legitimizes the actions of institutions. Unless public policy, evolved through democratic process,
gives the signals, one cannot expect India to realize its aspirations on the MSME front. Analysing the key trends in the
MSME scene of India, this paper analyses the policy imperatives as also the growth perspectives.
