Minister’s Message

Minister2“It is a pleasure to learn that the NSIC with support of Ministry of MSME, Government of India is organizing the MSME DEFEXPO 2013 from December 12th -14th in Bangalore.  I am sure that this event will bring several MSMEs into India’s strategic manufacturing sector.  Nation such as India cannot rely on imports and needs to become self-sufficient.  Industrial and technological growth in the past decades has indicated that it is possible to achieve this self-reliance in Defense by harnessing the emerging dynamism of the MSMEs. The Government sector alone cannot fulfill the requirements of Defense forces and therefore, the private sector has to come in a big way.  The Ministry Of Defense (MoD) has long recognized this need and has stressed on the importance of being self reliant. The offset policy under the Defense  Procurement Procedure (DPP) is an example of this. The latest version of the offset policy has introduced a multiplier of 1.5 for MSME’s and which I am sure will provide bountiful opportunities for the MSMEs to play their rightful role in building strategic capabilities in the interest of the nation’s defence. My best wishes for this msme defexpo 2013 exhibition.”
