A. Problem Analysis

 1. What was the problem before the implementation of the initiative?
MSME entrepreneurs are expected to be conversant with many acts and rules of the government, especially the ones that are applicable to it. However, the information is not available at one place for ready reference. Furthermore, the contents of some of these may be difficult to comprehend owing to complex structure and language. Due to lack of access to information, the MSME Entrepreneurs are required to run around various departments / agencies / offices for enquiry, consultation, guidance and finally to submit application to various government departments. Apart from the usual harassment they often become victims of unscrupulous agents/touts. Even after all this, multiple visits are required to the concerned offices for follow up and for final collection of certificate/license. This remains one of the biggest challenges and a disincentive for an entrepreneur to start a new venture or to diversify or expand.
