New Delhi, 16 Oct (KNN) Federation of Industries, Jammu (FOIJ) have put forward their demand on Price/ Purchase preference for procurement of Goods/ Works from Local MSME Units by State/ Central Govt. Departments working in Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir to the officials.

FOIJ mentioned that in past most of the Govt. Departments of J&K UT issued the NITs for the Procurement of Goods/Works with the “BRAND”

Specific for the reason best known to the concerned Officials resulting denial of the participation of the Local MSME Units who are manufacturing the Quality Goods duly BIS marked as par with the outside suppliers at par with the requirement of the Department.

Lalit Mahajan, Co-Chairman, Federation of Industries Jammu and President Bari Brahmana Industries Association (Regd.) also drew the kind attention of Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha towards the plight of Local MSME Units suffering very badly due to the inconsiderate treatment being given by the State Government.

Departments while purchasing the Goods do not buy it from the Local SSI Units who are willing to supply the Goods at the Lowest offer, rather are purchased from outside the state.

Moreover the position is more serious that in case of Local MSME Units quoted Rates at par with the outside suppliers, partial orders shall place to Local suppliers and the bulk supply shall be taken from the Outside Suppliers.

Due to Locational Disadvantages the Local MSME Units cannot compete with the outside suppliers and keeping in mind the above facts the Price and Purchase Preference always given to the Local MSME Units in the Industrial Policies issued by the J&K State Govt. in past but in the Industrial Policy 2021-30 no such Incentive is given to the Local MSME Units resulting thousand of MSME Units dependent on the Govt. Supplies facing clouser in future.

FOIJ has requested the Lt. Governor to save the Local MSME Units from clouser by providing the Price/Purchase Preference to Local MSME Units in the State/Central Govt. Purchases with the Directions to all the Govt.

Department to procure the Goods from Local MSME Units on the basis of their Assessed production Capacity Certified by the Industries Department.
