Shimla, 26 Nov: Nand Lal Sharma, Chairman & Managing Director, SJVN, inaugurated a Vendor Development meet for Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSME) at Chandigarh. Present were Geeta Kapur, Director (Personnel), AK Singh, Director (Finance), and Sushil Kumar Sharma, Director (Electrical), along with other senior officials.
CMD Sharma, in his inaugural address, said that the Vendor Development Programmes are aimed at building the capacity of Micro and Small Enterprises (MSMEs) and enhancing their participation in the public procurement process. He further said that SJVN had been organising such meets to reinforce the contribution of MSMEs in the growth story of SJVN.
He reminded that these events emphasise SJVN’s commitment to nurturing entrepreneurs and creating a pool of vendors that can generate value for society as a whole. It is crucial to strengthen the MSMEs through Sustainable Vendor Development, more so in these challenging times of pandemic. This would not only go a long way in strengthening the “Make in India” initiative of Government of India, but also contribute to the economic growth of the Nation. The objective is to create opportunities for MSMEs to develop as potential vendors for SJVN under the Public Procurement Policy.
To create more awareness among the MSMEs, a detailed presentation on SJVN and the e-Procurement process in SJVN was made. In other presentations, registration process of bidders on the online portals was explained in detail. In the end an interactive session was conducted at which vendor queries were addressed.
During the meet SJVN also facilitated the on-boarding of the Vendors on the NSIC, GeM, UDYAM and e-Procurement platforms. During the event, presentations were also made by MSME Development Institute, Government e-Market Place (GeM), (NSIC), National SC/ST Hub (NSSH), M1xchange and Invoice Mart.
