The major issue in MSME’S is managing its working capital. To ensure recovery of the dues towards MSME’S, the Government has created this portal (MSEFC) where the supplier (being an MSME) can file an application after uploading the copy of the invoice/ work order for which the payments are due from the buyer for more than 45 days.

It will ensure the recovery of the dues within 90 days. This is similar to arbitration. 

For the duration of delay, the purchaser is responsible for paying compound interest mostly on supplier’s monthly rests on the sum at the 3 times the bank rate informed by RBI in the event that he fails to pay the supplier for his supplies of products or services within 45 days of receiving the goods/services provided.

Unless the appellant (not the supplier) wishes to file an appeal, no request to set aside any MSEFC decision or grant shall be accompanied by any court unless the appellant (not the supplier) has deposited with it, the 75% of the award sum.


The Public Procurement Policy for Micro and Small Enterprises (MSME) has specified that at the start of the year, each Central Ministry / Department / PSU sets an annual procurement target for the MSME sector with the aim of obtaining the optimum procurement target of at least 20 % of the total annual purchases from goods or services manufactured or rendered by MSMEs.

To ensure this, a portal ‘MSME Sambandh’ has been created where MSME’S can register themselves, get the details of the tenders available exclusively for the MSME’S and apply for such tenders.


It is an online job portal where the MSME’S can register themselves and screen, review, put vacancies, and hire candidates without any third-party interventions.
