Medium, small and micro enterprises feel small

Medium, small and micro enterprises feel small
BS Reporter / New Delhi December 8, 2008, 1:06 IST
The medium, small and micro enterprises (MSMEs), which account for over 40 per cent of India’s industrial production, are unhappy over the fiscal measures that were announced today. Industry representatives from these sectors are likely to meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Monday to present their unmet demands. “The measures may be incremental but inconsequential,” said Anil Bharadwaj, secretary general, Federation of Indian Micro and Small and Medium Enterprises. The MSME sector employs 31 million people in about 10 million units spread across the country.

Government Announces Measures for stimulating the Economy

MSME Sector The Government attaches the highest priority to supporting the medium, small and micro enterprises (MSMEs) sector which is critical for employment generation. To facilitate the flow of credit to MSMEs, RBI has announced a refinance facility of Rs.7000 crore for SIDBI which will be available to support incremental lending, either directly to MSMEs or indirectly via banks, NBFCs and SFCs. In addition, the following steps are being taken. (a) To boost collateral free lending, the current guarantee cover under Credit Guarantee Scheme for Micro and Small enterprises on loans will be extended from Rs.50 lakh to Rs.1 crore with guarantee cover of 50 percent. (b) The lock in period for loans covered under the existing credit guarantee scheme will be reduced from 24 to 18 months, to encourage banks to cover more loans under the guarantee scheme. (c) Government will issue an advisory to Central Public Sector Enterprises and request State Public Sector Enterprises to ensure prompt payment of bills of MSMEs. Easing of credit conditions generally should help PSUs to make such payments on schedule.

Tyre, tire oil from used Tyres, tires - project information

Tyre, tire oil from used Tyres, tires - project information: "Thermal pyrolysis is a process used for tire recycling. It splits complex materials into desirable ones under high temperature, i.e. turns rubber into oil, steel and carbon powder. Development of effective pyrolysis technologies
has been going on since the early eighties but the high temperature of the process (typically 700°C - 800°C) has so far led to poor quality of the recycled substances with low commercial value.
It is further claimed that the decreased temperature of
the process prevents complex hydrocarbons from thermal destruction, which happens in traditional processes conducted at higher temperatures.
100 Tons/Day plant is estimated to cost USD 30 Millions
The reclaimed oil could be used for fuel or petroleum products, the carbon black for inks, dyes or rubber or plastic products, and steel for automobiles or construction materials"

Direct Marketing of Mushrooms

Direct marketing
If you can sell your mushrooms or mushroom products directly to an end user, you will naturally receive a better price than if you sell to a wholesaler. Direct marketing of mushrooms at local farmers' markets, to restaurants, or in supermarkets is possible in many locations. When competing in local markets, excellent service, top quality, and consistent supply, rather than the lowest price, might win the sale, particularly with gourmet chefs. Some chefs specialize in locally grown foods and may be interested for that reason. Others are willing to pay for fresh, premium produce. In any case, establishing a relationship with the buyer and reliably delivering a quality product are essential for this type of marketing.
Local grocery stores are another potential buyer of fresh mushrooms. However, an Arkansas grower found that local grocery chains were interested in her shiitake mushrooms only if she could assure them of a year-round supply. She decided that she had to add indoor production in order to meet this requirement. Natural foods stores are a market that may be more tolerant of seasonal supply. Any chef or grocer will require assurances of both quality and regular supply before switching from established wholesale sources.
