MSME Ministry writes to CMDs of top 500 Corporate Enterprises over delayed payments

In another major step towards payment of MSME dues by different sectors, Union Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (M/o MSMEs) has now impressed upon the private sector enterprises of the country to take measures for release of payment of MSME dues on priority.

During the announcement of AtmaNirbhar Package, it was desired that the MSME receivables and dues should be paid in 45 days. Accordingly Ministry of MSME took up the matter aggressively with Central Ministries, their departments and Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs). In addition to writing and following up with them,  

Ministry has also devised an online system for reporting. Hundreds of CPSEs have been reporting on this system about the monthly dues and payments since last four months. Around Rs. 10000 crores have been reported to have been paid by the Ministries and CPSEs. Similarly, Ministry has also taken up the issue with States and motivated them to monitor and see that such payments are made expeditiously.
