    Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) has been a backbone of the economic growth over the last few decades. MSMEs play a crucial role in providing large employment opportunities on low investments thereby reducing the major employment problems and also help in the industrialisation of rural & backward areas.

    ORGANIZATIONS CONSIDERED AS ‘MSME’

    MSME are classified into two classes:

    1. Manufacturing enterprises: Organization engaged in the manufacture, production, processing or preservation of goods with the following limits as categorized below:

     MICRO ENTERPRISE- Investment in plant and machinery upto max 25 lakh

     SMALL ENTERPRISE- Investment in plant and machinery more than 25 lakh but to 5 crores
