“Given the role of MSMEs in an economy, we had suggested to procure from small enterprises, which the Government of Haryana has incorporated in the Budget for FY 2022-23 in the form of PADMA scheme. In keeping with our recommendations to give a push to the MSME sector, for over a period of five years, an enabling MSME ecosystem shall be developed in each block around an identified product segment.

Sharma said that the State Government’s decision to initiate a new programme on natural farming under the existing scheme for promotion of sustainable agriculture is in sync with our recommendation to promote organic farming by the creation of specific land banks and offering special incentives on the cultivation of organic crops.

The ASSOCHAM Haryana State Development Council had also recommended strengthening of the skill development eco-system for youth along with making loan available for startups and small enterprises at lower interest rate, which the State Government has accepted and incorporated in the Budget for FY 2022-23.
